Thanks, guys!  Grin  It seems I was going on a chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and cherry theme with this one.

I FINISHED MY AFGHANS!  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Mine:


My moms:


I love them so much. All done with Caron Simply Soft, they're heavier than I expected, but so soft and cozy.  Smiley But the problem with these, and the other afghan I made, sometimes the ends come unraveled, even if I weave them in. I think it's because I cut too close to the knot. Anyone have any better finishing techniques?

Now on to 2009.  Cheesy

WOW mochaxlight! They turned out great! The top one reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream, lol! And your mom's is very Spring!

I'm having raveling issues with my '07 afghan, too, now it's been through the washing machine a few times. I joined the '08 squares with single crochet instead of whipstitching, that seems more sturdy. Also, I noticed most of the unraveling is occuring at the centers, so I will try to take extra care at the starts. I was going to ask if anyone had any tips on that, too, so I'm glad you asked!

mochaxlight, they came out fantastic! I've put mine aside, but seeing completed afghans is making me itch to start on it again Smiley

Thanks all.  Grin

Ooo, Esjay I've tried the crochet-over technique with granny daughters, but I'm going to use it again for my 2009 squares. And a dab of glue? Right on it.  Roll Eyes

I've had a lot of luck with leaving a really long tail, then when weaving in making sure that I go in at least two different directions.

The times I've had unraveling that wasn't due to the yarn failing, it was because I didn't leave a long enough tail.

I love both of them! Good color combinations. I think you were really sweet to make one for your mom too. You're a good daughter!
