SURGERY: THE AFGHAN

This is the completed afghan that took around 3 months for the doctor to complete.


It was quite an undertaking and required surgery several times until I was finally able to release the patient to it's current owner.

Here is a close up of the work. The afghan was knitted in 7 panels. The argyle panels were intarsia and then completed with duplicate stitch chevrolet blue. Mistakes were made, and removing duplicate stitch was no fun, and actually resembled ER surgery. Once the panels were all completed they were stitched together with a steady hand and then blocked and fringed.


That's all for today. The Doctor has many new patients on the needles and will update the blog later in the week. Knit on.....
