Crochet Completion!



When Mom and I went to buy the bins the other day, this was the real reason we went shopping was to buy the additional skein of yarn needed to finish the afghan for Caleb!
We only had to go around a little bit but still needed the whole skein to finish the job! 
(This yarn has the durability of the regular Red Heart super saver skeins but without the harshness of that yarn.  Of course, the cost is double.)
 As soon as it went on my lap to complete the last round, Lena came to claim the center of the afghan.
As every good cat human knows, I worked around her no matter how inconvenient it was!
 Once I worked the rest of that last round of single crochet, it still didn't look finished to me.
The addition of backward crochet was just the look I wanted!
Turning the pile of yarn around again was quite the feat!
 Someone had a very good nap tucked in all that loveliness.
 And now the Ocean Moods Afghan is done in time to give to Caleb tonight when they come for the weekend~
Each crocheted block measures 6" and we made it 9 blocks across (54+") and 12 down (76+")
It required the better part of 13 skeins.
Consider the debt paid, my dear son!

Striped!

 I had a little ball of hand spun yarn in gray  and another little one of charcoal color  so I decided to put them to work together! ...
