it's done!!

After 4 long months, I've finally finished the hue shift afghan. I'm really quite enamored with it, although I don't think I'll ever knit a blanket from anything other than bulky yarn ever again.

It's already quite an Instagram hit, and 2 people on Ravelry have favorited it!! (Seriously, I'm easily excited.) I folded it up and put it on the back of the chair in Baby B's room. I may or may not drag it out on the regular to cuddle with, though. I kindof enjoyed the later part when I could cover up with it while knitting. :)

Now I just need to figure out what's next (although C has asked for a week-long knitting hiatus. HA!)!

UPDATE: Thanks to Tracy for really making me do the math on how long this blanket took me. It was around 175 hours. This, people, is why I'll never have an etsy store.


  1. I can't get over how amazing this is! How much time per day did you spend on it?

  2. That is absolutely gorgeous! I felt exactly the same after I finished the Lizard Ridge Afghan. What's your name on Ravelry, I'll friend you there. (Although I mostly use it for the forums these days!)
