I did it. I actually finished the afghan I had pulled out as a UFO when all hell broke loose with the hubby's heart. Even I must admit, it turned out better than I hoped. I kind of thought it might be pretty plain and boring, but I think it's rather elegant. In a masculine sort of way, that is.
It's just a simple DC, working in the back loop only to give it that ridged texture. (Also makes it easy to do without counting.) Then I did a DC border all the way around. Here's how the corners turned out.
I'm thinking this one goes to my nephew because my sister-in-law expressed interest in it. Chalk up another FO!
