I am beginning to see the end of this glorious project - such a beautiful star afghan! It will be difficult sending it off with my step-son, but I know he will appreciate it. He'll probably use it on his lap when he's playing computer games, or snuggle under it when watching television. I'm so glad I'm using long-wearing Bernat Super Value yarn for the project. It should last for YEARS!
I placed the afghan on 6 long circular needles, to show how big it has become. Wow!!
Looks about the size of a lapghan, doesn't it? And I've used up half of my yarn.
Right now, there are about 30 rows left to knit, but they are VERY LONG rows. Remember the chart I made? The one that shows how many stitches I should have on every row? Well, my last row will have almost 1,000 stitches. Right now, with 30 rows left, I have over 750 stitches on the needles.
I was curious about how many TOTAL stitches I would be knitting when I finished the afghan, so I pulled out my BIG pink calculator to figure it out. Love that thing! It's easy to find when I'm busy with a knitting project. Ha!
The numbers speak for themselves. I will have knit 62,500 stitches when it's complete. HOLY MOLEY!!!
