The #@%&ing Afghan is Finished!

Knit from the center out, I bound off 808 stitches last night. It started by following the Kerry blue shawl pattern and then I decided to change a bit after a while. This small afghan measures 52" on each side. This was a relief to BO. Now, I only have small projects to finish for Christmas, and it all seems SOOOO much more manageable now.

For this afghan, I used Caron Simply Soft worsted in Autumn Red, Bone, and Dark Country Blue. I'm not a fan of the colors, but I know my parent's will love it.

For more pics of this afghan, and so you can see the center portion, you can either look through old blog posts, look on my flickr page , or look in my project page on Ravelry (username: PurpleYarn). I'm having issues with blogger this morning and I'm lucky to have gotten this one pic to

808 stitches?? That is a heroic feat. I can't fathom binding off that many stitches. But the afghan is beautiful, definitely worth the effort!
