Working at the yarn store, offers all sorts of opportunities.
Like a couple of weeks ago when a customer came in with the un-assembled strips of a 6-years-in-the-making, lap-sized afghan. The sewing up had her baffled and so the afghan had been sitting in the closet for 6 years. That is one serious finishing issue.
We talked about the best way to put it together, but since I am not an afghan-girl I am not sure my advise was all that 'expert'. In the end, it was decided to crochet the strips together with a contrasting yarn. An interest-adding feature in blue to match the decor.
I often say that I am not an afghan kind of girl and I would further clarify that by saying that I am especially not this kind of an afghan, afghan-girl. By that I mean, the type of afghan I see as 'My Grandma's Afghan'.
However, having finished it, I must admit, it has a special kind of heart-warming appeal.
I hope she likes it.
