Living Room Afghan

Oh boy, oh boy, did I forget how much yarn an afghan takes to make! I started out with 4 skeins, (not to mention they were the small, half-sized skeins), and barely got a thick scarf! So after many more trips to the craft store for yarn, I finally finished this baby. I used the shell stitch, which I am rather fond of. I originally wanted to tie tassels to the ends, and then unravel them so they frayed, but with the type of yarn I used, it didn't look quite right, so I finished it off with a scalloped edge. (Surprised?) I tossed it over the arm of the couch, and what do ya know? It's a keeper!



By the way, I plan on posting the pattern to this...I just need to finish writing it out, so expect it sometime next week.

Love,
