Vikings Granny 'Ghan--100% Finished!

And here she is all sewn together, border done and ends woven in. I enjoy making the squares but there are certainly many, many ends to weave in and often this is the stage that a wip becomes an ufo with one of my crochet projects. This one made it to the finish with more than a month to spare! Here's a few pictures:

After I did the "big" shot, I wanted to get a shot of a portion of the edging:

The spread's color was too light and the border didn't show up very well. I pulled the spread back and placed the 'ghan on the bright and tacky colored sheets:

Color of the background certainly contrasts and clashes with the 'ghan but you can see the edging much better.

Thanks for stopping in.  Hugs to all....


  1. Congratulations on finishing your afghan! It looks terrific and I'm sure it will be well received. Have a great day. :-)

  2. Very nice Sharon - your friend is gonna love it. :)

  3. Thank you. All of you keep me motivated :). I'm on to the next project.

  4. That's a big WOW. Came out beautiful.

  5. Thanks Glor. I made the border bigger so I wouldn't have so much extra yarn. Trying to reduce the stash. ;)
