r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

Finally finished!

Finally Finished!

My first crochet afghan.

I started it in January 2012.

I made a few squares, then set it aside.

It looked very 70s with the rust, orange and brown!

It became a WIP - a Work In Progress.
Then it became a "Zzz" - a hibernating project.
And it hibernated for years.
And then came 2016!
And I was determined to finish this afghan!

I love how adding the two greens and the peach changed the whole dynamic of the colours!
Not so much the 70s anymore.

When I started the afghan I had just learned to crochet. So I found it very slow going to make each square. While the afghan was hibernating, I made quite a few pairs of crochet slippers. I had confidence in my crochet skills!
And I have to admit, sewing together all those squares? Not so fun. But not so bad either.

And here it is!
I even added a fringe!

While I was making these squares, 
I worried that I would not like the finished afghan, 
but I DO like it!
