Early this summer, when looking through a thrift shop, I located a large bag with three large balls of yarn in it. Upon investigation, I noticed it was a kit for an afghan that someone had begun, and never got to finish. Everything was there: the yarn, instructions, cable needle still in the stitches. The price was right, so what else could I do but buy it.
I have been working on that thing all summer. It was a small, quick project, right?. As it grew, I realized why someone gave up on it. It is sooooo tedious to work on! The pattern is a simple chevron, which is boring boring boring to knit. But I persevered. Let me tell you, I've watched a lot of old Gunsmoke episodes while knitting this thing!
I'm just about completed with it, but wanted to show you a little snippet of what was on the needles. Right now, I'm doing the hem all around it, which was not in the original plan, but I wanted a nice finish on the edges. More to come.
