This square took for. ev. er. Literally. I thought I would whip it out in a couple of dedicated hours at a church crafting day but lo and behold, 10 hours later and the square still have about 4 inches left to completion. Ugggg! You can imagine how delighted and...well...maybe ecstatic might be a better word...I felt when I finally cast off the square and laid it on top of my pile of finished squares. It took every ounce of self-discipline I possess to pick up my needles and cast on the next square. Oh...how I longed to set the afghan aside for another four years after that doozy. But, I held my ground and pressed forward with an offensive strike.
I love this square. I wasn't thrilled with the idea of it while looking at the picture in the pattern book, but as soon as I started shaping those leaves on the tree, I fell in love. The actual knitting of the square was quite simple. And this sqaure completed the tan portion of my afghan. Now to finish up the blue squares.
I have 5 squares left to knit. Wooo Hooo! I am plugging away at it and shall see it complete soon. Very soon. I just know dear James will cuddle under this blanket the minute its done. I can envision it in my head as I daydream about that day in the near future. Yes, he will be thrilled.
I must run along now and start school with my dear little one and then its off to a very busy day for us. Swimming. Visiting a brand new baby and taking the family a meal. Then family night tonight. Ahhhh...life. My life is good. God pours out his blessings on me every single day.
