WIP: Afghan undersides

Written by Sarah on February 12th, 2011 Posted in afghan, knits

Last week I was talking a lot about those ends. Each square on the afghan has anywhere from two to ten ends. And they all need to be woven in. It’s driving me a little nutty. Weaving in ends is the WORST part of knitting. I’m pretty sure that statistics show that every knitter dreads this process (leave me a comment if you disagree! I’d love to meet you).

This week, I just wanted to show you how the wrong side of the afghan looks. It’s the part of the knitting people rarely display on the internet. I’m always curious to see what the wrong side looks like. I want to know how neat other knitters keep theirs. Sometimes I look at my wrong sides and think, “The right side is nice but this back side is a disaster!” I imagine that knitters with more skill, patience, and experience than myself have fantastic wrong sides with clean seams and perfectly reversed faire isle.

Anyway, my wrong side is not so awful here. I’m not trying to scare you. But I’m definitely pleased with the intarsia between the colors. I was confused when I started because, honestly, I can’t remember the last time I knit anything in garter stitch let alone with multiple colors. I looked for some examples of garter stitch intarsia and I found one but I’ll share my own wrong side in case you’re curious too.

I haven’t been able to knit that much this week with my new job. It’s been so busy and exhausting getting into the new routine but I’m very happy there and it’s a lot of fun. That being said, I’m going to go drink coffee and knit!
