But that's OK. Things change over the course of time. And the good news is that I now have my first completed afghan for the year.
Nearly all of the yarn used in this afghan is scrap yarn from other projects, either mine or other people's. I used the same pattern for all of the squares.
My goal was to make this afghan look like the crochet version of a patchwork quilt.
The original purpose of a patchwork quilt was to use up scrap pieces of fabric. So this is the yarn version of the patchwork quilt. I guess that I can call this afghan a "patchwork afghan."
I am very happy with this afghan and I thank everyone who gave me their leftover yarn. My plan is to take this afghan to Roswell Park Cancer Institute within a few weeks, where it will be donated as my gift to someone who is fighting cancer.
