Star Afghan
I can't believe I finished the Bernat Star Afghan! It took a solid two months of knitting to get it done. When I finished the knitting, I wove in the ends, then stuck the afghan in the washing machine for a cool rinse with fabric softener.

Then, I took it outside to display it on my car:


Next, I took it back inside to block it, but it was too large for my blocking board. So, I just pinned it on the wall.

Wow, that's spectacular! I can't imagine finishing such a large project -- I'm having trouble getting through a baby blanket. It really is pretty. What kind of yarn did you use?

I used Bernat Super Value yarn - the new, softer kind.

I wanted to get a photo outside in the sunlight, but didn't want to get the afghan dirty. My car was the only clean thing I could find!

Great job!

Oy! My hands and wrists ache for ya'! I remember how my hands felt when I had finally finished that log cabin blanket (the City Tweed one).
