An African Adventure…

This is a project I took on for my mum’s 60th birthday, which turned out to be a bit of a beast. It’s an African-themed Afghan throw/blanket, which I decided to make in autumnal colours (and use up lots of scrag-ends of yarn I had lying around).

Of course, my mum’s 60th came and went, and the throw remains unfinished – I may manage it by Christmas or her 63rd birthday if I get a move on…

Here’s the original picture from Ravelry I saw and decided to have a go at…

Getting this far has taken me about 2 years… And it’s only 1/3 done….

But to be fair, I abandoned it for at least a year and a half…. Must dig it out of the cupboard and carry on…
