2012 Scrap Afghan ~ Complete!

Finally! The great crocheted behemoth of 2012 is complete! Whew! What a project this was. This afghan measures 71 by 75 inches and is crocheted in woven stitch using Red Heart worsted weight yarn. I started it with the idea that I would make a bunch of scarves to use up my leftover yarn, but then I really didn't feel like ending and starting again, so I just kept on crocheting! This afghan has been keeping me warm and cozy, and giving me quite the workout, for the past many months so it will be strange not to spend my evenings with it anymore. But all good things must end, and it's time for this one to find a new home to keep someone else warm and cozy.

Check out these pictures, and if you're a fan of guessing games, be sure to read all the way to the end!

2012 Scrap Afghan ~ Complete!This afghan was made using up leftover yarn from other projects. Some skeins had just a small amount leftover, but others were almost completely full. This blue stripe and the gold one next to it were made from almost full skeins of yarn.

2012 Scrap Afghan ~ Complete!So I've given you a few clues that might help you in this little guessing game. Put on your thinking caps and see if you can guess how much this afghan weighs. Leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your guess and your email. The person who comes closest to the actual weight of the afghan without going over will win a little prize package from me. I haven't decided what the prize will be, so perhaps you can suggest something you might want to win from me when you submit your guess. I'm always open to suggestions!

I'll keep this guessing game open until my children return to school on the 23rd of April, only because I probably won't have time to think about it until then! Their spring break starts as soon as school is dismissed today!

If this afghan looks like something you would love to have in your home or to give as a gift to someone special, it will be making an appearance in my Etsy shop soon. But you can email me and let me know you're interested if you like! If you are local, you would not have to pay shipping as I would be happy to deliver it in person!

Happy Stitching!
