I am going to do more with the crocheted edging I added to the pattern. It currently has a row of navy single crochet.
Of course, this is in "raw" form--unblocked and no finishing touches.
This has been an enjoyable, frustrating, huge project. I am beginning to feel a weight lifting as I near completion. Why? Because it has taken much longer than I had anticipated--for various reasons--and because I'll be so happy to give it to J.
Note: I thought this was a huge project, but I totally take that back! Click on this link to see why!! http://www.almostrandom.com/needlesnhooks/2007/04/26/why-hillary-climbed-everest/
