Zig Zag Afghan WIP

Sunday, January 18, 2009



This is the afghan that will never end! In a moment of insanity, I did a little math to figure out how my stitches I will have to knit to complete the eight panels of the afghan. Are you ready...wait for it....124,080!!

Now I see why this is listed as a "group project." Knit one panel yourself and have 7 friends do the rest. But, I can't complain too much because this is great tv knitting (Lost, seasons 1-4 to be precise), the yarn is fabulous and I love knitted garter stitch. And, even though I'm only halfway through with the afghan, it still covers my lap and feet wonderfully.

  4. it's lovely!!! and sometimes it's better to NOT count the stitches to be completed. i counted the number of triangles i would need to finish for a quilt once. it was something crazy like 12,000. i haven't worked on it much since. :)

  5. It is coming along! I like the colors you are using. I am a huge fan of Lost! Best show ever created. We bought the 4th season the day it came out and went through it in about 4 days. I just love it. I get so excited. It definilty isn't a show I can watch on TV though because it gets too intenese for me and I can't stand having to wait though the commercials.

  6. Amazing afgan! Looks so pretty. And that is tons of knitting to be done. But nothing like a movie to help that out with.

  13. Amazing. Well, you just have another few zillion stitches to do :) I am kidding. I have a love-hate relationship with garter stitch. Curse it, yet cant live without it. That reminds me, I have to get back to my garter stitch baby blanket.

  14. You are a knitting machine! I can't believe all the great stuff you've posted lately. I tried to teach myself to do a basic stitch last week. It did not go well. (This is probably for the best right now.)
