I started on my afghan in May 08 and 1 year and 3 months later I finally finished it! And with 1 day to spare - the gift recipient arrives tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone here - I came to look up topics when I was stuck and had a couple questions answered. You all are so wonderful and I appreciate the support.

I have a couple caps I need to make next and will probably stick to some small projects for a while before I tackle another big one like that. It sure was satisfying to finish it though!

Thanks again!

Aloha,

Srf

Congratulations!!
And now the best part will come when the recipient sees what you made with your own hands.

Congratulations! The larger the project is, the greater sense of accomplishment you get when you complete it. An afghan is quite an undertaking, so you have good reason to be proud of yourself.

Don't forget to take photos of it for your records / scrapbook before you wrap it up and give it away. And if you have a web site or an account to an online photo site such as Flickr or PhotoBucket, be sure to post the pictures and tell us the URL or link so we can see!

Ah >
I do know that each stitch was placed on that afghan with LOVE for the one who will receive it.

I made a scarf with a 4 row pattern a while back and it took me many months to make it , but I thought of the receiver with every stitch.
When the Ooooo how beautiful , came from the receiver , it was worth the constant counting and making sure each stitch and row was right.

Be Blessed for your patience to create and finish that project!
