WIP | Knitting Sunshine

Time is at a premium today, so I'll cut to the chase. To offset this:


(That's Gregory the Gargoyle, a gift from a friend. Notice how grumpy he looks.)

(UPDATE: Gregory had a right to look grumpy. By the end of the day, so much snow had fallen only the tips of his wings were visible.)

I'm making this:


Yes, it's another afghan. Yes, it's reversible. Yes, it features strip construction (my favorite approach to afghans). Yes, it's fast and easy (a quality I find irresistible as you know). Yes, it's being knit entirely from stash.

The best thing? It's little bit like knitting sunshine, something we've seen far too little of lately.

I hope the sun is shining in your little corner of the world. If it isn't, try creating your own by knitting something (anything) using your sunniest yarn.


This cheerful beginning turned into the first of several Twegen reversible afghans. You can read more about it and purchase the pattern here: Twegen Reversible Afghan.

  2. You know how much I love your afghans! Sadly, we're experiencing more snow and freezing rain today so I should stash dive and get sunshiny colors on my needles!

  3. I like the way you think, sunshine is definitely needed these days. I've had enough of snow for a while.

  8. A bit of sunshine with snow - it must brighten your day picking that up to work on :)

    And I can sympathise with the gargoyle, I'd be pretty grumpy sitting in the snow too ;)
