Finally!

I can now say 'I'm Finished'!! I've been working on this throw for a little over a month. Ran into some snags along the way and almost gave up after the first one. This is a join-as-you-go pattern and I had a hard time figuring out the 'join' part. After I got that part, it all went more smoothly from there.

I don't make too many afghans and now I know why. On this one, I made myself weave in the ends as I went so when It was done, it was done!

Then come to find out, when I finished everything but the border, the directions for that was left off the free pattern leaflet. Go figure! What a big proof-reading error that was! Luckily, I found them online on the Red Heart website. So if you do this throw, just remember to go there to get your border instructions. Of course it wasn't any rocket science to it, just 5 sc's in the CH-3 space and 3 sc's in the CH space and 1 sc in the SC space. I memorized it after 2 seconds which is astounding for me since I have a terrible memory. I love the color blue and as soon as I seen this pattern on the back of my Crochet Today magazine I knew I had to make it.

It feels great to finally finish something. It has been too long!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Thank you! The color is what really sets it off I think. I fell in love the first time I saw it!

This is so pretty. I love the snow flakes against the back ground color. It's like a winter sky at dusk with snow falling. :)
