Guys! You have NO idea how stupidly proud of this afghan I am. It's the first full sized one I've made and oh my goodness was it a PAIN in the hiney to work on.
As you see I started with blocks and then went in rounds, and then added more blocks. That was NOT the best of ideas...trust me don't do it!! But by the time I realized it wouldn't work I had made all those smaller blocks...I had to frog and add until I could make them work. xD Then I did more rounds...but it wasn't get long enough!!! So I went from rounds to back and forth rows. I did ten on each end, and then a couple more rounds and by that point it was plenty wide enough and I was running out of yarn. So more back and forth it was! I thought I was never going to finish it in time for my dad's birthday (July 11th). But I did!!! I was a day early in fact..and I breathed the BIGGEST sigh of relief when I finished it I promise you.
And...I just want to share a couple of photos of my sweet Niece and goddaughter. Okay, so she only LOOKS sweet, sometimes she can be a handful. She's almost 4 years old and boy is she a sassy little thing. But we all love her so much and spoil her even though we shouldn't.
I took a bunch of photo's the last time she had a 'sleepover' and I just wanted to share the cuteness!!
And also MANY MANY MANY thanks to my bestest friend in New York who sent a box full of books for Alien to 'read' and play with. :D
