Whew. The pattern was hard to follow, probably because I kept starting and stopping (and working on it through 3 Harry Pottters and the first Narnia movie..no wonder it felt so epic!), so I attempted to wing it. Which resulted in thin stripes, fat stripes, 12 stripes....grrr.
|Dropping and picking up three different yarns was definitely a learning curve, too!|
Frog and frog and frog...and Old Glory is finally done. Albeit, a bit wonky. Even with 39 stiches across the top and bottom, she still looks a bit trapzoidal. Oh well, nothing a little border can't hide, right? Uh...maybe not. But eventually, she will be stitched into the Hot Mess Calendar Blanket, so I cant imagine a stitch or two of wonkiness will detract from this disaster of color and design, this nightmare of feng shui, this granny square afghan that would make granny cry.
