This is the afghan I've been working on for the past 2 1/2 months! I made it for a fundraiser for the Maine Adaptive Ski Program...the auction is on Friday, 10/15/10!!! Nervewracking weekend trying to finish on time...

It measures approx. 54" x 65" and is made with Bernat Berella "4" on #8 needles. Border is the bramble stitch, aka, popcorn stitch, raspberry stitch, etc. Color is actually a deep navy and very difficult to photograph. Date should read 10/12/2010.

Have never worked on a project that seemed so endless...

Congratulations!

All in one piece...starts out with 258 stitches, then decrease of 3 stitches, for 255 stitches on one needle. When it got heavy I put a straight chair in front of me to support the weight.
