Tyson's Afghan

This is the Swedish weaving afghan I just finished for my grandson, Tyson.  My daughter suggested he'd like one with the colors of his favorite football team, the Minnesota Vikings, so that's why I chose the purple and gold on white fabric.

I followed the pattern until I got to the border but had to make some changes for the hem because there was a flaw in the fabric.  I'd planned to do the small gold diamonds and then do a row of lettering (MV) but couldn't quite figure out how to do it so I made up a small border that fit in with the rest of the pattern.  I really do want to learn how to weave in lettering but it will have to wait till another day.
