Yay! The Knitting on Our Lapghan is COMPLETE!

Alert the media!

This morning, I finally finished all the knitting on our lapghan, and finished weaving in all the ends as well. :)

As you know, I had to cut our lapghan in half recently, to do some work on parts that were drawing in too much on the sides of the lapghan.

Early this morning, I got the two halves, and used kitchener stitch to put them together. They look great!

Now, our lapghan looks AMAZING!!! All I have left to do is to add a crochet border, then we can give it to charity. YAY!!!

Here is the lapghan, laid out on the back of my little Mazda Protege.
