WIP: To pass the time

Posted on

I have some new furniture ordered from Kloter Farms in Ellington.  The sofas will take 6-10 weeks to come in.  So in order to make the weeks speed by, I decided to knit a afghan to match.  I chose to knit Wool Leaves by Jared Flood. Kara and Betsy have made this for baby blankets a number of times and they highly recommended the pattern.  Quick, easy and stunning.  I am doubling both the width and length.  Hoping for a large curl up on my comfy sofas kind of afghan.  IMG_8562 IMG_8563 IMG_8564 IMG_8566This yarn is Shibui Staccatio - 70% merino and 30% silk. The pattern is very quick moving.  I am holding this double and knitting on size 11 needles.  I made this much progress in one evening.  I think I will be able to complete before the sofas arrive.

    very awesome!! i love the the color. Although the “wip” always sends shivers down my spine. i try not to use that at home as that is a term used at the work place of myself and my husband in this “bank that cannot fail” that we both work at.

    […] about knitting a sweater in a month, and then reality hits.  Similar to my goal of finishing an afghan before my new sofas arrived in 8 weeks.  That didn’t happen either!  My sofas from Kloter Farms are really lovely, and my afghan […]
