I'm Done With This!!

Finally, after beginning in March with the stay at home mandate, I finished the pansy afghan on Wednesday. I was more than happy to tie the last square knot and say..."I'm done!" The pattern I followed said to weave in the loose ends of the yarn, but I never do. I tie them. For one purpose; weaving them does no good when the work is run through the washing machine. They come loose! And the weaving process has to be done again. Over and over [each time it's washed]. So I do the square knot and trim off the excess the 1st time around...never any loose ends to deal with in the future!

  3. It's beautiful. I would never be able to finish an afghan like that because I don't have the patience to make all those pansies. I also never weave the ends when I crochet. I make knots.

    1. I don't understand the "weaving in" either. Knots makes more sense. Thanks Ann.
