It's over. After almost of year of on and off work and ultimately kicking myself for taking on a project like this again, the afghan is done.
I had taken on the project because last year I made one for Garrick for Christmas and his parents liked it so much I thought I would make one for them for Christmas.
And his parents were quite happily surprised by it.
So a year later, they have their own hand-made afghan to take home with them to Texas. Where they won't need to use it. Because it's perpetually 60 degrees and above.
I will think this through more carefully before taking on a project of this magnitude again.
