Just in time for the new year!

Just one last FO...
Pattern: Craftsman Afghan
For: Mom
Yarn: Suri Dream (Blackberry, Aegean, Sandstorm, Twilight, Spanish Moss, Natural) <3
Needles: size 11 Harmony Options
Mods/Notes: I very much am in loooove with this yarn! So soft and warm. Thinking about making one for myself (even though I still have the colors left from the actual kit). The only change I made was one less mittered square of Twilight because I ran so low. This is it pre blocking and weaving in ends. Just wanted to get this in before the ball drops tonight!

I laid it out on the floor only to find a bit of a surprise. Do you see what I see???

Yup that would be a dropped stitch. Found only after I finished binding off of course. For now, I just looped it back up with a crochet hook and tied a piece of scrap yarn to the yarn between two stitches to hold it in place. I honestly don't know if there's something better to do or not so this will have to do until I can do some research on it.
Of course, this was Mom's Christmas gift and I'm just finishing it now :o( She flew back to North Carolina this afternoon so I'll be shipping this to her as soon as possible.

Happy New Year all!!

Quick Update

The Boy's Surprise Scarf is (almost) finished! I'm all done with the I just have to finish weaving in the ends (UGH!) and then block it. It curls up to about a third it's width so I can't wait for it to behave after blocking so I can see it all laid out. I feel like I barely used any of the sandy colored skein of yarn and the purple is almost gone! I think the leftover sandy colored yarn will be designated for a Who? Hat for me or maybe even for The Roomie. I probably won't have time to update again until after the holidays...the end of the semester is crazy for me! I have 2 presentations, a final, a final assignment, and a 6 page paper all due at various times between now and the 22nd. Aaaahhhh craziness...
