Well it seems I took a longer break than I had intended. From Christmas to the New Year I didn't crochet a thing. It was only a couple of days ago that I decided to pick up my hook again and try to finish this afghan that I started back in November. This was supposed to be my Christmas afghan but I didn't finish it in time. I think I'll leave it out the rest of the winter season so I can have a chance to enjoy it a bit.
It was already pieced together. It just needed the border.
I chose red for the edging because I wanted something colorful and cheery. This is after all my Christmas afghan. I like the added boost of color.
I like the way it looks on my porch swing with the sun hitting it. There's just something about an afghan that makes a place feel homey and inviting. Even out on the front porch it seems to be calling me to sit and curl up with it.
This was an enjoyable project. I liked the whole process of making all the blocks, piecing them together and finishing it off with a pretty edge. Crocheting is therapeutic in a way. However, I also know, that you will understand me when I say I'm glad it's finished. Whew! Onto the next project.
I hope everyone is doing well and I can't wait to do my rounds so I can catch up with all of you and see all the lovely treasures you all are busy creating. ♥
