Just when I thought I was ahead of the game

I thought I had finished putting the loops on all of the panels and had moved on to the sets of leaves. I need 60 sets of leaves and 60 flowers. I'm using sport weight yarn and a size 0 steel hook. Yeah, not exactly the recommended size but it's making them tighter and giving them a bit of a curl so it all works out.

But as I'm putting the panels in their holding bag I find one that hasn't been trimmed with loops yet! I did a happy dance yesterday thinking they were done and now I've got to trim another. Ugh!!!

Oh well, onwards to the end. I've got about 2 weeks left to get this done and shipped out.

Untrimmed panel and leaves

Woo Hoo!!

I've finished the 6 hunter green panels for the Irish Lace and Roses afghan. Now on to the side trim that will join them.

After that I'll start on the actual roses and leaves once the sport weight SOFT white arrives. I mistakenly ordered off white instead and boy what a difference. Luckily my husband said why send it back, you know you'll use it at some point.

On to the loops!!
