WIP | Still Finishing

The work I do tends to be very project oriented. As a result, I'm constantly reminding my clients (and myself) that the last 10% of any project can feel as grueling and demanding as the first 90%. All those last minute details and crises, all those last minute metaphorical ends to weave.

The same is true with knitting. With the blue toned reversible Cable Rib afghan, I'm still finishing ... but not finished. Here's where things stand.

I've finished picking up stitches.

 I've finished joining the strips.

I've finished admiring the interesting contrast between the front (cables) and back (rib).

Clearly it's time to buckle down and finish the finishing. There are some ends to weave, a task I always find daunting, but luckily with this pattern, there are comparatively few.

So that's where things stand. I'm still finishing, but not finished, a situation I need to quickly rectify. Because I can feel the urge to knit another one of these bubbling up in the background.

It's Wednesday, so don't forget to admire the lovely work featured at Tami's Amis, Small Things and Frontier Dreams.


  1. I love the colors you chose and I love the cables. I've never attempted knitting in strips because I'm the world's worst finisher, but your joining of the strips looks neat and almost fun; I'll look forward to some finished photos!

    1. I'm so glad you like it, Bonny. Actually, every part of this pattern - the cables, the joining, even the finishing - are all remarkably easy to do.

  2. The joining looks great! And yes, you need to finish. After all, isn't Finished Object Friday just around the corner?

    1. Thank you, how kind! And you're right, FO Friday is right around the corner. That's the problem. As slow as I am, it may be a week or two before all the finishing is finished.

  3. Finishing is the hardest part for me.


Thanks for stopping by! I read and enjoy each and every comment. If you have questions, share those too, and I'll do my best to respond.
