Every so often I get the urge to knit. I started this project, an afghan in an elongated chevron pattern, several years ago. Just like with quilt projects, it got set aside. I pulled it back out about 6 weeks ago, and I’ve completed about 2 feet of it since. It feels good to have something to pull out and work on for an hour or two at a time. I even took it in the car to work on when we drove down to take our son Loren out for dinner for his 27th birthday (gasp).
Because of the size of the afghan, I put it on a circular needle set. It makes it easier to keep it on the needle, but then it can slide off either side. That’s what those little rubber needle stoppers are for! What a nifty little invention! I’ll show the competed project when it is finished – hopefully before Christmas!
