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....

Today's Plan...

Today's plan is to finish up the afghan I've been working on. As I mentioned in my previous post, the end is in sight! I've already started making squares for the next afghan that I'll be sending to Germany. I need to slip one or two small things in here so it's not so boring reading about the same project over and over.

I'm off to a doctor's appointment and then I'll be back home and hope to spend some time crocheting. I keep starting crochet projects and haven't had a chance to play around with my knifty knitter looms or butterfly looms. Perhaps I'll take one of them with me the end of next month when I go visiting my ol' high school friend in California. Always have to have a to-go project and the funny thing about deciding on a to-go project is that it takes longer to make that decision than deciding what clothes to pack! Y'all have a nice day....

Vikings' Afghan--Almost Finished!!!

Just a few ends to weave in and the granny square afghan in Minnesota Viking colors will be done. Whooo Hooo! I'm pleased with in and so are my Chi fur-babies; they both cuddled up in it when it was laying on the couch. I really need a picture of that... Picture of finished 'ghan coming soon. Hope everyone has a great week.

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (25 April 2011)

Here is a cute scarf that gives pizzazz to your winter outfits. I have almost finished making one of these but I "lost" it in my craft room! It is an easy pattern and I need to find mine and finish it. Enjoy...
