It's Done

Here I am posing on the afghan Mom finished last night. It is very soft and warm to sleep on. I keep trying to take a nap on it, but Mom makes me leave.
This is a dark picture, but Mom was trying to show the size of it. It is almost the length of a queen size bed, and covers about 2/3 of the mattress width.
And here is a close up of the texture. The pattern is called Basketweave Throw. Mom got the pattern from Lion Brand Yarn. She said it took her about 6 or 7 days/nights of crocheting about 5 hours at a time. She watched DVDs while she worked on it. The good news is that there is enough yarn left over for Mom to crochet or knit a blanket for me, and maybe one for one of our kitty friends.

What a lovely afghan. The Woman quite likes the pattern to (so hard to find a good pattern with crocheting) but she is in the middle of a project she started a few years ago and only got about three quarters of the way through...in a few years who knows?

Your mom did a beautiful job! I bet you can't wait until you get one of your own.

That looks furry lovely. Mum is working on something by crow shay too but it doesn't need to be done until March! She mainly works on it while she watches feetsball.

How beautiful!! Your Mom's niece is very lucky to be getting that afghan! Mama crochets a little, only EASY patterns cause she's too lazy to do anything too difficult....

Hugs & Purrs,
