The Neverending Afghan

As you know, I'm trying to finish my sister's Christmas afghan before starting on other holiday projects. The afghan is almost done. I have most of the rows sewed together. I knew I had to make seven Magenta squares to finish the last two rows. So I made those and commenced sewing those rows together. To my surprise, when I came to the last row, I discovered that I was short two Windsor Blue squares. Alas, this afghan is never-ending!

Crochet since the move

Since my move to west Tennessee, I haven't had much time for my favorite hobby. In between starting a new job and organizing the cottage, I haven't had time to spare for my various projects.

However, Christmas is looming. It's only 4 months away!!! Where did the time go? I'm working on finishing up my sister's Christmas afghan. Once that's finished, I plan to tackle my Christmas list from the top down. That means Mom's annual chicken is the first project I'll work on.

I also have the yarn to make a baby afghan for a friend. She's not expecting yet, but she knows it will be a girl, so I invested in Red Heart's Lavender, Light Raspberry, and Soft White. It should be beautiful.
