Success, sweet and satisfying! The braids have now been assembled, well all but one of them anyway. The assembly was easy I guess, only one problem. I forgot to count how many folds in my braids, you know so that they would all be the same length and match up when assembled. Duh, this brain not working on all cylinders of late, lol. Crocheting is supposed to be “stress reducing” for criminy sakes, he he he. Once I had the same amount of folds to my braids it went together easily.
I must say though, that this isn’t what I would tag as a “scrap” afghan. I think of scrap as small amounts of different colors, right? This used up close to a whole skein of each color. I now have scrap leftover for a future “scrap” afghan. Everyone who has walked into the house of late has ohhed and awwed over this blanket. Truly, it is a beautiful design and in the primary colors it is striking.
I still have to finish the last red braid, attach it, and then finish the edging. Oh, I forgot to let you know that this puppy is very heavy and warm! Not something that I would ever start stitching in the late spring again, lol. Thank goodness I am crocheting in the early hours of the morning while it is still cool!
