W.I.P. Wednesday: Backgammon Board.

This was supposed to be my husband’s father’s day gift this year. I didn’t start it until the week before his birthday (his birthday was last thursday) thinking maybe, if I was knitting day and night I could perhaps finish it in time. HA! I haven’t had much time to touch it since I started!

Working with 4 bobins + MC isn’t working so well for me — I think I’m going to go down to 2 and do lots of weaving at the end — because right now, it’s getting so tangled that it’s most likely going to mean the end of the project before it really has a chance. And I really *really* want to see this project through — I love this idea AND maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to win at least ONCE on this board. I am not a sore loser, but GOODNESS when I play backgammon with Adam I always, always *always* lose. And that’s just no fun!

This pattern is from the lovely week-end knitting. So many nice simple quickly (or so i thought!) projects in the book! I hope to complete a few others for christmas gifts — which I realize I really need to start working on… now.

Can I just say that I wish all my needles were bamboo? well, sortof. Alexandre broke one of my tiny 2.5mm bamboo sock needles a while back (of a set of 5), so maybe not all.

Here it is on Ravelry…

Backgammon Board

[as a side note, I always have projects on the go and I joined the flickr Wednesday WIP group quite a while ago thinking it would keep me accountable for projects… and I’m pretty sure this is the first time I share in the pool!]


One thought on “W.I.P. Wednesday: Backgammon Board.

  1. oh my goodness Annie, that is amazing! I wish I could 1) knit and 2) play backgammon!

    (My husband’s birthday is next week and I’m still trying to figure out how to make the cell phone cozy he half jokingly asked for… he’ll probably get it for Christmas)
