It seems like miles and may look like miles, but shortly after starting my 3rd skein, I decided to stretch it out and see what it looks like, and just like a gift, it appears to be enough! (210") I'm trying not to get my hopes up... and until I pin it to the blanket, I really shouldn't celebrate.
See the rounded end (unblocked) nearest the camera? More on that later. I just couldn't figure out a better way without adding an annex to the kitchen.
While waiting to dry, I discovered step 4 in my directions which I skipped... I needed to crochet completely around the outer edge before attaching this edging. sigh... and it's SO stressful. It is the least successful (read worst-looking) part of the project. I don't have the knack for even crochet stitches when I have uneven weft. I'm going to take a vote tomorrow night at Knit Nite to see if others think it's gift-worthy, or it should remain on my sofa. Either way, I like it!! Sisterdale, here I come!
