A year in the making

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.

 Mind you, this picture is only 2/3 of the whole afghan (though it was finished when the picture was taken, I just couldn't fit it all in one picture). And the picture doesn't really do justice to the blue, it's much brighter in person.

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 since it was for Garrick's parents, Garrick did the fringe. He did a very nice job.

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.


  1. They loved it! That photo of mom and dad is priceless!

    I LOVVVVVVE my afghan, Umm, I mean our afghan.
    What a wonderful surprise to receive such a beautiful gift, made with so much love.
    Our afghan resides on the back of the couch and every night I snuggle into it's loving-ness.
    I will always treasure my afghan (Our afghan)
    Love, Katrin
