First Finish of the Year

As I mentioned in a previous post I did not finish the my father-in-law's afghan in time for Christmas. We decided to wrap it unfinished and finish as quickly as possible.  I delivered it yesterday, he was very happy with it as you can see in the picture below.  A little posing going on here.

Took a couple of pictures in our family room before delivering.

I used the tutorial that Attic24 shares here.  I have made quite a few different ripples over the years but I really love how Lucy of Attic24 instructs on the edging so the ends are changed from rippled to straight edge.  You can see this in the next picture.

I have one more crochet project to finish off before I start the CAL that I plan on joining this year.  I am working on a prayer shawl that I want to get sent off to a friend that is fighting cancer.  I hope to finish it and get it sent out by next week.  

Blessings to you from our home in the woods.

Wow - beautiful - and he looks so happy!! I love the straight edge. I have a friend [another blogger] who's making the same afghan from Lucy. Gives me the itch to pick up the crochet hook again!

Hey there...glad you finished your blanket and I love the colors. Very sand and sea!
Sorry to hear about your friend. Be sure to share the prayer shawl when you finish it. I am going to post a picture of a prayer shawl that a friend is making for her sister in law who is fighting breast cancer.

I love your ripple afghan - neat to see it in these colours - I've not long finished one too but didn't do the edging - I must have missed that step in the instructions!! If you are interested, here is mine ....
