I'm making good progress on the African Blanket and I think it's possible that I might just finish in time to gift it a week tomorrow. There are still a couple of rows left to join and then I'll have the border pieces to do after that.
My mom has been a HUGE help as she has been slip stitching the corners and weaving in all the ends from the joining - there's no way I'd have made it this far without her.
There have been moments when I've got so thoroughly sick of this blanket that I've been ready to pitch it out the window (the joining method is SO tedious) but I know it will be worth it when I'm done. I just wish the deadline was not so soon but then again, if it wasn't, it would probably never get done!
