Babette Update

I should have spent more time today working on finishing the next to last side of Elizabeth Grace's afghan. But, to be honest, I have been crocheting all day and just burnt out.

So, here we go photo 1, 2 and today's photo.


I know you are saying to yourself, "Self. why did she take the last picture sideways?
My answer is, "Duh, self. I didn't take it sideways . . . I rotated the pix so that the squares in picture 1 would be facing the same direction. Then people can see what I have actually completed."

When I finish this side, then I have to add the section that goes next to the right side of the photo. That will be the complete pattern. But, it will only be 40" x 43" (+/-). Now, to me, a 3' x 3' afghan isn't real big.

So, here's my plan:
  1. Put an interesting edging on the afghan when I finish the last section.
  2. edging will be about 1" in width
  3. border the "border" in 3 or 4 rounds of 2-round grannies . . . I have made them solid in the pictures
  4. put another border around the afghan and see how big it is now.
  5. If I still need more size, probably some 4-round grannies . . . changing colors each round.
I can't wait to see what it finally ends up looking like.
