Introduction: Mile-A-Minute

This is a project that I started several years ago and came across last weekend when I was looking for something new to work on. I have no idea why I put it aside, but I was inspired by this challenge to finish it and be able to move on to a new project with a (mostly) clean conscience. I used Lion Brand Wool Ease and a pattern from the Annie's Attic 'Warm and Wonderful Mile-a-Minute Afghans'. It's called Forgetful Granny and was very easy to make. Although I love making the strips, sewing them together was my least favorite part of this project.

    It looks great! Congratulations on finishing, too -- the last little bits are often the hardest part. What's next on your list? ;)

    I think my next project is going to be one of those huge granny square afghans. I have been eyeballing them for a while and will take this opportunity to try to use up leftover yarn from other projects. I like making the granny squares, but I'm not so big on putting them together, so maybe this will work better for me. What kind of things do you like to make?

    Oh wow, that looks great! Nice job, I like how the ends look like that, and by the way, your dog is cute! :-)

    My 'fuzzy baby' is always close at hand when I am crocheting or knitting. Sometimes the biggest challenge I have is to keep her off the balls of yarn (they make good pillows for her). Cheers!

    Thank you! What amazed me the most what I still liked the colors I had picked out when I originally started tis project. I appreciate the kind words! Sue
