The 2009 Afghan is finally finished (with much thanks to Marie)

2009 Afghan - finished!

2009 Afghan - finished!

Yarn: About half and half Fiesta Yarns Kokopelli and Trendsetter Merinos VIII; some handspun; bordered with Dark Horse Fantasy

Pattern: 2009 Afghan by Lorena Haldeman and Sharon Emery

Notes: About a week ago, I had to face the conclusion that I have so much other deadline knitting that I just don’t have the time to devote to this, and my wonderful friend Marie really stepped up and helped me out. In return for some handspun, she finished crocheting this beast together for me. I’m terrible at asking for help, so this was a good lesson in reaching out for me. Thank you so much, Marie – I can’t tell you what a load off of my heavy shoulders this was! LOVE YOU SO HARD!

And you know what? For all the time this took, for all the problems I had over-dyeing to get the colors more uniform… the finished product really kicks ass. I can’t wait for it to get cold again (and neither can Tim, since it fits him almost perfectly)!
