It started in October-ish…maybe. I’m not sure when really, but Alex’s girlfriend Hannah asked me this past fall to make her an afghan. She wanted sharp chevrons, all greys & blues & white, in totally random order, and about ‘this big’ gestures completed the order. I showed her a varied lot with every color of blue & grey that I had in the magical craft closet. Then I sent her off packing to the yarn store with her chosen scrap samples to pick up the loot necessary to approximately get her ‘this big’ blankie done. Of course my ball-park guess was wrong and we made 2 more trips for yarn…that’s my S.O.P. ~ guessing is not my forte.
I finally finished 3+ months later…fast afghans are not my forte either apparently.

Also, don’t mess with Hannah. Alex was given the evil eye for the minor infraction of not wanting his picture taken.
