I purchased a box of vintage yarn on ebay last year. In it were these whole skeins of virgin wool from the 70s and some ugly stinky yarn. I was determined to put it all to good use so I set out to make an afghan. It was a complete pain in the butt. No matter how much febreeze I spray it smells odd, the yarn was all different weights, and the wool kept breaking every few stitches. I don't know what I am going to do with this thing but here it is:

I do admire you for persevering with this. So the yarn has not gone to waste as it might otherwise have done.
Even if it is not stunningly beautiful the main point of an afghan is to keep someone warm and wool, no matter what colour it is, is pretty good at keeping people warm. So well done for finishing it.

Half the joy for me is the work itself! I am very positive this will come in handy some day! Maybe someone's pet needs a place to lay?

Put that puppy out in the sun, it should kill the funk. Then hide it under your comforter, winters coming!
