Kaffe Klatch Update

Well, it seems that most of the Kaffe Klatch got caught up in Merriment during the holidays.  

Tsk tsk I say :)

One of us was very busy....and it wasn't me!

First Ros teased me with a photo of her afghan all sewn up!
(Just so you get an idea of how large this is, that is a Queen size bed!)

The she sent me this photo - with a crochet edging applied.
Almost done, but not quite.
It has been decided that another round of crochet is required!

Now I have to also explain that while all this afghan knitting was going on...

Yes, Ros actually finished this beauty!  Another huge amount of stranded knitting!  (She graciously allowed me to share this photo.....as long as I removed her head :) )

I MUST find out what Darlene and Ann (the other Kaffe Klatch members) have been up to.

Me? You want to know what I have been doing?

Kaffe Afghan squares at the top,
Emley in Fine Art Aran on the left (started before the Kaffe KAL)
and Mette in Brushed Fleece on the right.

Do you see a pattern here?  I seem to have an aversion to sewing things up!

Now, in my defence, I did knit and completely finish, my Nordic Tree Garland!
I have been living in reno land too - hopefully to be totally, finally, finished! next week!
I knit and completely finished my Muddy scarf....
I couldn't resist trying out Sarah Hatton's newest idea - one design, three options...so I swatched!
I spent a day in the big city of Toronto at the Creative Festival!

ALL while the Kaffe Afghan KAL was going on, and during the Holidays!  So now that I've listed all this, I feel better, I feel energized, I feel the need!


Happy knitting (and finishing) everyone!


You won't see me until I have a FP to report (Finished Project)
(FP, much better than FO :) )


  1. Nice post! And agree, FP, wayyyy better than FO!

    1. Thanks Kristen, wishing you many FP's! :)

  2. The brown afghan looks good with the wood! And entertaining post! Enjoyed reading it

    1. Hi Ute! Yes, that brown colour way is beautiful. I hope my red colour way looks as good when it is done, as I have thought it might live in our bed room :) The Martin Storey one was done to suit the spare bedroom....in case of visitors :)

  3. Thanks for sharing the pictures of everyone's projects. That afghan on the bed is amazing! But the thought of having had to sew up all those pieces makes me feel a bit light-headed. It looks like you have quite a bit of sewing in your future too. :-)

  4. Kristie, knitting as a group helped keep us going...until the Holidays that is :) It is only natural that things would get side tracked at Christmas with all of the goings on. Even Hubby and I, usually quite reclusive, have been out and about, actually enjoying it all :) ! I hope that eventually all of the Kaffe Klatch participants, including me :) , have a finished project to share! Stay tuned!

  5. Anne! .....I am thrilled to see my knitted blanket and Franziska on your lovely blog. Now, if only I could work out how to post a credited comment on your site all would be well. :-) Ros
