Nearly 3 years later I finally got this finished. I had connected this project with watching football. So, it took several football seasons to get it done. I only worked on it while watching football. Since the 49ers were doing so well this season I got very close to finishing. When the 49ers didn't make it to the Super Bowl I decided to go ahead and watch it and work on my afghan. Still not finished I then decided to keep working on it until it was done.
Fringe and all it's done!
The only bad thing about his afghan is it's from a book about using up your scrap yarn. I had to buy more yarn to finish it. I was 10 inches away from finishing it and I just couldn't stop it would have been too narrow. I can't believe my "use up the scraps" afghan has caused more scraps. I have lots of yarn left over. Considering making another afghan from the "Scrap Afghan" pattern book or will it be creating a vicious circle? I was lucky this time that the colors of yarn were still being sold. I may not be so lucky next time.
The one family member who I think loves afghans the most couldn't wait to relax on my nearly made blanket. Turned my back for a second and who was already laying on it? Yes, Poodle-Doo couldn't resist a finely crafted homemade afghan.
