"Half-ghan"



I always get antsy when I'm near the end of a project. It's because I'm SO CLOSE to being done but it feels like it's taking too long to get there. I really feel like I'm being tortured.

I have started knitting square 11 of 12 and I'm both happy and pissed.  "Happy" because I'm almost done.  "Pissed" because I'm not done yet.

I decided that I would start assembling the finished squares to help deal with this. I figured that if I could see the afghan partially completed that I would be appeased until I can get the knitting done.

Each square has to have a crochet border.  Three squares have to be single crocheted together into a strip, then strips must be crocheted together.  I usually dislike making afghans that have to be assembled: I prefer making them in one large piece.  However, I wanted this afghan so badly that I slapped my dislike away.  It helps that the squares are large and that there aren't many of them.

I have assembled 6 squares and, DUDE, I am pleased with how this is turning out.

Go Nik! You're getting there. From what I can see, it's going to be one beautiful afghan.
