Well I am finally finished with this afghan! This all started almost 2 years ago when I was trying to decide on my next project. My daughter was tired of going with me to the yarn store every week, so she said I should do something challenging to me. So I told her she could pick out what I should do. So she asked me to make this afghan. It's an Annie's Attic pattern from the Annie's Crochet Quilt Afghan Club, called Points of Light. I found it really challenging. At first I couldn't figure out how to do the squares - you start with 1 color and make a triangle, then add another color and finish the rest of the square. Then of course put them all together. I had to stop working on it entirely because I couldn't crochet. I have rheumatoid arthritis and my wrists and hands were the worst. But after medication, etc., it's gotten so I can do a bit of crocheting again, so I started working on this. I wanted to finish by her birthday which is March 16th, so I made it! WHEW. She's thrilled with it and I'm just glad it's done!!!!
