finished the 63 squares afghan!

There were times when I thought I’d never reach this point, but my 63 squares afghan is finally complete! It all came together really well, and I’m really pleased with the finished piece.

Final dimensions are 2.00m x 1.55m (79″ x 61″) and it weighs 2.1kg (4.3lb). It’s so large I’m having difficulty getting a good picture! Here is is on a (double) bed: 


And here it is on the sofa:

    I’ve had this leaflet lying around forever and I bought yarn specifically for this, but haven’t started on it yet. These pictures make me want to get cracking on it, though. Very nice! 🙂
