I am finally done with my first crochet afghan! I started this at the beginning of summer and 6 months later it's finally finished. It took me more than 200 hours to complete, but so worth it. I love it. And I feel very accomplished. (I feel like I get some bragging rights after 200 hours). I was worried that I would never finish it. I tend to get really excited about big projects, get about half way through them and then get excited about something else, resulting in a lot of unfinished projects.
Silly as it may sound, this project taught me that I can do anything. I can take on big, long, tedious projects and finish them! When I look at this blanket I think about how patient I was and can be. It will be a constant reminder that the small and simple things we do each day can turn into something big and beautiful. Who knew crochet could teach you all those things.
I'm working on two more afghans not quite as big as this one, but so pretty. I'm really excited to finish them soon...ish.
