So I finally finished my afghan...we won't say how long it took, although considering most of my other projects it really didn't take that long. I am afraid though I definitely came in last place in my race against Sands and Anna. Oh well, it just feels good to get it finished. I was dreading putting it all together, but that actually turned out to be my favorite part. I found a great tutorial online to piece it together and then I made up my own edging pattern.
