I finished the afghan!!!!!!!

After a year and a half, the Braided Leaf Sophisticate is finally finished!!! I'm SO happy. The finished product was worth the wait, I think. I'd lost my mojo for a while because it didn't seem to be going anywhere, but I got it back and finished it. Yay!!

It is worked in panels and then joined together. The joining was actually pretty fun, and I love how smooth the transition is between panels!
