My wrist, thumb, and elbow are sore from a rough weekend trying to put a dent in my seafoam afhan - The Beast.
I've been working on this blanket since late May/early June 2012. I started it with the intention of giving it as a gift in late June of 2012... complete lunacy! Now over a year later I'm still only about 75-80% finished. Insanity.
Now I am aiming for Christmas 2013. It MUST BE DONE. I don't hate the thing, mind you. I still love the color and the pattern and it seems to be turning out really nicely. I think my issues with it lately have been that I am eyeing another project I want to get started on, but really can't until this one is done.
So, put together the fact that I really started it too large (it's a twin bed size), I'm a slow crocheter, and I always have several projects going on at once, it just seems like I'll never get this done.
And I almost completely gave up on it this weekend - telling myself that it's "big enough" and would be fine as just a "lap throw" and just "weave in the darn ends and start on the edging". But after laying it out on a bed I decided it just looked weird at the size it currently is, and I must soldier on.
Wish me luck...
