Well, I finally finished something huge! Well, huge for me! Two years ago while on my anniversary weekend at a B&B I started an afghan. I used the 10-stitch pattern and some awesome yarn that I got from Joannes.
Here is the yarn and the swatch from when I started.
The yarn by itself
This is the first part of it (notice the size with the dvd in the center for)
I then didn't touch it for a year!!! I decided that this year I was going to finish it, the size was just until I ran out of yarn and I had 4 huge skeins!!!
I finally finished it on 1/18/12!! The end result is 63" x 69"! (see the dvd to gauge the size of the blanket)? That is huge! I am using a ton of exclamation points here!!!! It is so soft and squishy and warm!! And it is the first thing that I have made for me in a long time! I am so glad to have finished it just in time for the cold weather we are having now.
This is the blanket folded in half on the couch with a dvd for size gauge.
- I am quite please with myself, so much so that I think I am going to start work on another blanket, hopefully this one won't take me 2 years to finish! LOL
