WIP | Problem or Possibility?

I haven't forgotten I owe you the rest of the Swafghan story. It will come, I promise.

I have several things on the needles and that's a problem. I've been struggling to get and keep the number of WIPs at a manageable level (whatever that is), and while some nominal progress has been made on that front, let's just agree there's room for more.

Progress that is, not WIPs. Which is why this is so puzzling.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but it would appear that I've cast on and started another reversible cable blanket. How did that happen?

Not only am I entranced with this stitch right now, it's evident I'm becoming addicted to afghans. And at the moment, I appear addicted to this one in particular. 

I can't decide. Is that a problem? Or a possibility?


PS: A wet snow is falling this morning, so I'm wrapped in knits from head to toe. The Swafghan is covering my legs, mitts are warming my hands and an old, felted vest (purchased) is adding an extra layer of warmth.

PPS: It's WIP Wednesday, so check out the wonderful things at Tami's Amis, Frontier Dreams and Small Things.

  1. Being addicted to afghans at this time of year isn't a problem. If it was July? Eh....

    1. Great point! However, I confess I've been knitting some version or another of this strip-based afghan all summer, too.

  4. Possibility! I actually just started knitting to learn to make cabled afghans and such. (I crochet and the cables just aren't the same!) I LOVE that color though, wow!

    1. You're right, nothing matches the look of knitted cables. As you can see, my approach to cables is to keep it simple. Keep us posted on your progress.

    1. Thank you, MYOS, glad you like it. Since I can't seem to stop knitting these, I'm taking your advice.

  6. Such a pretty color. Can you ever have too many afghans? Probably yes, but go for it.

    1. I love this color, too, and it's even prettier in person. Is there such a thing as too many afghans? Good question ...
