The flower blanket in the foreground is known in my home as “the blanket that will never end”. It even has a song… which I can’t post here because there is just way too many inappropriate words in it and I believe I told WordPress my blog would be G rated.
Here is a Ravelry link to the project. You will notice that I placed the start date as December of 2012. Truth is, I can’t remember when I started it. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel- I only have 6 some more rows to go.
One of my friends asked me what I had left to do on the afghan, and so I came up with this list detailing how the remainder of this project is most likely to go:
finish the last few flower centers
- place border on the unfinished motifs
- layout motifs to decide on placement
- decide I don’t like the first way that I have it arranged, spend 40 minutes playing “where should this go?” with the remaining 120-some motifs
- yell at dog for playing onto of the loose motifs while I have them on the floor
- decide I don’t really care what order the colors are in anymore and call the arrangement ‘good enough’
- join motifs in strips (while watching trashy TV)
- join strips together onto the main blanket
- put a border on that sucker
- drink wine
- weave in ends
- most likely drink more wine (there are way too many ends on this freaking blanket)
- wash/dry it
- tell the hubster that he needs to gush about how awesome it is until I forget about how long it took me to weave in all those million ends
- place it on the bed and rejoice that it is finally done!
As of last night- all flower centers are done! Woot woot!
Looks like I have some trashy TV and wine to look forward to this weekend- nothing like keeping it classy 🙂
Of course, as I complain about this project taking forever, I already have my next two afghan patterns picked out!
