Finished Tilted

This is a short post to say that I've finished the pink Tilted Blocks; I'm putting a longer post at the Knitting New Scarves Knitalong.
The other purpose for this post is to say Hello to all the jigsaw players (?) who came over on Tuesday from Jigzone. I nearly fainted when I saw my blog stats - what a responsibility.

I've done the Jigzone jigsaws for years; it's one of the older Bookmarks on my browser and I've always found them compelling, although I hardly ever do a real jigsaw. I'm not very clever about it, so I usually do a 48-piece Classic. I think the playing-through satisfaction of jigsaws is very close to that of knitting (and that desktop favourite, Solitaire) and I'm really pleased that you've been interested enough to come over and that so many of you stayed to read the blog. I hope you come back. There's a new ball of wool in the sidebar to keep you busy, a ball of Lorna's Lace's Shepherd Sport in the Lake Tahoe colourway.

I'm a big fan of jigzone; haven't done a real jigsaw puzzle since I discovered the link. You don't have to worry about the cat knocking pieces on the floor when she decides to nap in the middle of the puzzle. Your knitting is beautiful. I knit but my real passion is quilting. Thanks for the puzzles.

I miss doing non-virtual jigsaw puzzles! I look forward to the day when I have enough clutter-free space and time to get back into that hobby. In the meantime, I'll just have to knit... and do jigzone from time to time, too.

Hi, I was so excited when I saw your link on jigzone. I am pretty new to knitting, though not to jigzone. It is a real treat to read your blog, and it will be on my favorites now. Thank you.

I love your knitting! I've done quite a bit, but I've never seen the zigzag scarves -- lovely!
Jigzone is one of my favorite diversions (and free cell solitaire and sudokus). My favorite is the 48 states; I can pretend I'm working on geography and not just playing.
