The Beader Crochets

I have spent the last several days finishing up a project that I began almost a year ago.  The project was a request from my son to make him a blanket-sized afghan.  Yes, blanket-sized.  I had to take a few longish breaks from this project as life intervened.  Even so, the prediction I made when I first started working on this afghan about how long it would take me to finish was uncannily accurate.  My son asked me if it would be done by Christmas, and I said, "Yes, next Christmas."

The finished afghan is 85x110 inches and fits comfortably on my double-sized bed.

And then I began the next requested project, which is the scarf in progress, pictured below, in camo yarn.

This project will definitely be done by Christmas--this year.  :)


  1. Wow - impressive! I made an afghan for my son using the afghan stitch but the back didn't look very nice and I should have used heavier yarn. That was very long ago - haven't crocheted in ages. I know mine wasn't this big! Congratulations on finishing this project - no small feat!

  2. Wow. That IS a big project. Congrats on getting it finished.

  3. congrats on finishing the afghan! loving the camo yarn.

  4. Thanks, everyone, for your comments. I"m certainly glad that this project is finally done! :)
