This WIP has been “In progress” since February 2009. In my own defense, it’s pretty hot here to be stitching together a heavy blanket, so I only worked on it in the winters. Looks nice on my bed but I have so many of them and this one is extra long (5′ x 8′) and going to my tall ex-husband. He always appreciated my crocheting and is excited to have this one. Done in Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice, once washed it became incredibly and surprisingly soft for a machine wash/dry afghan.
