Jigsaw Afghan - 40%

My Jigsaw Afghan is now approximately 40% complete.  I've done 104 blocks of the 247, eight strips of the nineteen total.  I'm very happy with the way it's turning out.  The more I knit, the more of it looks like a jigsaw puzzle.

I'm setting it aside for a short while in favor of finishing a couple of small projects.  The red socks have been waiting patiently for such a long time and I'd like to finish them.  Then I can knit the bread basket liner that caught my eye on the Rainey Sisters' blog (yarn arrived in the mail yesterday!).  Also, I want work on the Effortless Cardigan now that the battle with the swatch has ended.

The Jigsaw Afghan will not become a UFO (unfinished object), however.  I get a rush from finishing projects and I'm looking forward to getting back to it, soon.  I just have so many things that I want to knit (and the designing bug is hitting me again), but I also want to see the projects when they are completely done.  Finishing can be as addictive for me as starting something new.

Your Afghan is coming along great, and so fast! I like the bright colours, specially the strawberry next to the purple. Who can feel sad under an Afghan like that?

I sent you an e-mail about some sheep wool I found here in Calgary,at a bargain store. Check your junk bin, in case my mail went there.
All the best

the afghan is coming along great -- I was tempted by that bread basket liner too but I just can't add one more project to my queue right now. I shall look forward to seeing how yours turns out.
