Working on One

I've been working on my grandson's afghan for what seems like ages and it's still not done.  Faye and Donna are still working diligently on theirs, too, and Donna is very close to the finish line.  I can't wait for her to finish so I can post a picture of it.  It's drop dead gorgeous.  Now, every one of them is gorgeous but Donna has chosen tons of vibrant colors for her yarn and it's the happiest afghan I've ever seen...I'm very jealous I didn't think to make one like it.

I'm always saying that it doesn't matter how long it takes you to complete your project and that's the truth.  With every line finished, it just becomes prettier and a joy to behold.  I usually have the recipient of the one I'm working on in mind so my thoughts often go to them while I work.  In this way, every afghan I make is full of love.

Both Donna's and mine should be finished within a few weeks but Faye will have to continue working on hers for a while yet.  I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

In the meantime, I hope all you Swedish weavers out there are having fun with your own projects and I'd love to post pictures of them if you're kind enough to send them to me.
