Last week I started crocheting this afghan for a friend who is expecting. It's not finished yet, but it's getting there and I thought I'd share a peek of it in progress.
I worked on it a little each evening last week, and then pretty ferociously over the weekend. By Sunday evening I had the entire thing together and the border well underway. Then it happened. The thing all knitters and crocheters dread. Somehow one of the blocks had started to unravel.
I had just crocheted seven rounds of border stitches around the entire afghan (including the unraveling block)! After closer inspection I realized that I must have accidentally clipped the yarn! How on earth did that happen?! (Maybe working on it while watching football had something to do with it...) Has that ever happened to you? I've dropped or missed stitches before, but never clipped one. I almost cried. I had worked so hard on the border for most of the day and I was going to have to pull it out! I reluctantly pulled out the seven rounds of border stitching, repaired the problem block and got to bed way too late.
So here it is, with just one border round completed. I do like the way it's turning out...now if I can just keep my scissors in check!
