Nana's blanket part2
Honestly, I didn’t think I would ever finish. To my surprise, yesterday between the masses, Nana’s blanket became a completed project! I am beyond joyful. As I type, it is in the washing machine. A gorgeous, warm day waits to dry it in the breeze and I have an enormous smile on my face.
From Feb.27 to April 29, this has been my main WIP. It’s bittersweet; I’m sure to miss touching it every day. Since adding the black outline, the afghan grew in size. I stop adding yo-yos and have 59 left. The blanket already fits a twin bed. It contains 580 circles (20x29). I can sew the left overs into a matching pillow. Thank you to all who have encouraged me to keep plugging away until I was done. This is truly my most rewarding project so far. I can’t wait to sleep with it tonight.
