Honestly, I've done so much crocheting over the last year, with my sewing room in limbo, so I couldn't quilt, that I'm quite tired of crocheting. That and the fact that I now have nerve problems in both wrists (carpal tunnel syndrome plus involvement of the ulnar nerve as well) have left me with little motivation to crochet. So it took me two months to finish Damian's Star. And I'm glad I finished it. I honestly got bored with it. I'm working on more quilting projects now.
Hee's the finished project:
It ended up being about 50 inches across - a good size for a 3-1/2 year old. Here's a close up of some of the stitching:
And, in case you're interested, here are the other afghans I made for Damian.
This is the rainbow afghan I made for him when he was a baby. I made this same pattern for my daughter when she was a baby, only using white with pastels.
This is the Choo-Choo Train afghan I finished more recently. In addition, I made him this hooded cardian when he was smaller.
And this knitted cardigan is a WIP (hopefully, I'll finish it before he outgrows it).I made this John Deere quilt for his first birthday. This is actually a quillow.
And I have the fabric to make him a dinosaur quilt for his bed.
I'm a rather indulgent grandmother, aren't I?
