I could go faster. But I do enjoy the thrill of pulling this afghan out every few months and adding new hexagons, changing the dimensions and the color sequencing every so slightly.
The lovely Komb afghan always gets pushed to the bottom of the knitting pile. Yet, when I pull it out, it always makes me smile. I should work on it more often… especially because it is a gift. A very belated gift. The Jojoland Rhythm yarn is a constant surprise. Until I seam it up, I am never quite sure how it will look. I completed hexagon #20 last night. That means I have about 40 more to go. Since each hexagon can take the better part of an hour (sometimes 2 if I am paying attention to something else) there is already quite a bit of time invested in this afghan.
An afghan that will need a very serious blocking in the end. It is narrower than I expected it to be, so, after I finish the requisite number of hexagons, I will probably add some width with any leftover yarn. I am thinking way ahead though…
I am taking things slow these days, in general. I have been spending a lot of time in the garden and in the kitchen, truly enjoying the fruits (and veggies) of the season. In fact, spending so much time outside seems to have caused a little problem… but, I am feeling okay. I just take a lot of naps. And in between those naps, I have been working a few rows of knitting and weaving. The only things that seem to go fast around here? the rate of reading (and listening to) books, and the fresh melons in the refrigerator.
