I made myself sit down for about five hours today
and finish my Mama's birthday afghan.
And it's done except for weaving in the yarn ends on the back.
Here, Albert is supervising the picture-taking.
It turned out alright, but I am a perfectionist.
I still ended up with some of the same color squares together.
I thought I had it all figured out, then laid out the strips to
piece together, and got confused, so just left them as is.
I think I'll just work on the other granny squares
for my niece's baby that is due in December,
and not piece it together into
an afghan for a while. It took a lot longer than
I thought it would to do this one for Mama.
But I am glad I was able to
make it through my first afghan.
Now, the sky's the limit!
