Pick Six

It felt so satisfying to finally finish panel #5 for my afghan a couple of weeks ago that I've been knitting during my lunch breaks instead of embroidering.  And that means that I recently finished panel #6!

This is the last time I use one of these plants as a prop.  I was picking tiny brambles out of the panel for a half hour!  It does look pretty though.

Panel #6

Even though most of the knitting is in the shadow in this shot, I had to include it because of how the light catches the fluffy tips of this plant.  I'm not a plant person so I have no idea what kind of plant this is, but it reminds me of cotton.

I've been seeing some awesome knitting around the blogs lately, like the Snood madness going on over at Did You Make That, and it makes me want to abandon this crazy long project and try something new.  But since I have a crate full of yarn and a pretty knit afghan waiting for a mate, I'll forge on until it's finished.


  1. I love that plant-- it's so pretty! You'll be so glad you stuck with this project when you have a cozy afghan this winter! I really like to make something quick and easy, like a hat, as a reward to myself after finishing a long project!

  2. Love snoods! Check out this one I finished earlier this year.


    There's a link in that post to another post with the actual pattern. I like it because it's not too big, easy to make, and has cables that aren't cheesy.

  3. Thanks for the tip, Sasha! I love that pattern!
