I think I can ...

I think I can get my Pinwheel Blanket (afghan) finished before the end of July.

During the past week there has been some no-sew grafting. Most of the units that I have knitted so far have been been joined into four-patch pinwheel blocks.

four units grafted together (no sewing!)
All the yarn ends that met in the centre of each block have been darned in.

All the blocks have been steam blocked (see yesterday's post) - the "star" shape in the previous photo would make joining difficult so blocking was necessary.

A layout has been decided but I don't want to spoil the final reveal so no picture just yet!

24 more blocks need to be knitted and grafted and then I can join all the blocks together, starting like this:

I think I can!


  1. Great work Lynne, I love the colours. I am working on a hexagon throw at the minute but I have a long way to go yet but I would like to have it finished by August......Hopefully :)

  2. It looks great. Love all the bright colors too. Thanks for the comment on my blog, I think Isabelle is a bit of a misery guts this week for photos!

  3. Love the fact that you are grafting as you go instead of sewing all the seams-very smart! This is going to be a stunning afghan!

  4. WOW! I think *I* can't. LOL. You are really doing an amazing job. I'm crocheting right now. Two blankets. Someone in our knitting bee (we meet weekly) is knitting a really cool vintage sock.

    Look forward to hearing more.
