I've slowed up a bit on my sewing, but I'm still working on it almost every day. I finally completed this afghan. It has a story. I was walking past a yard sale one day several months ago, and the lady said to me, "Oh it's you! I know you like yarn. Here's a bag or two of yarn for you." And she held up two big white plastic bags. "How much?" I asked.
"For you, it's free." So who can argue? I thought I might be getting some yarn ends that I could use to make amigurumi toys. But no, she had given me some heavy weight wool (I was able to make a shawl for my cousin and a scarf or two from that) and a half-finished granny square afghan in a lovely nubby yarn. There were no directions for the afghan but she had finished several squares from which I could easily figure out the pattern. And she had made 56 centers. The afghan squares made a good carry-along project for me. I finished them in a few weeks. Actually, the thing I hate is sewing the squares together. I always make afghans that you don't have to sew together, because I find joining the squares to be a tedious chore. However, last week I gritted my teeth and finished it. I had an incentive--I have decided to take the afghan to my daughter's for Thanksgiving (there's going to be a lot of guests)--and the first person to want it, can have it! It's my kitten--Free to a Good Home!
