I did the dtr clusters w/ chain 5 for the centers and did the last round as charted because I could see the way it will curve, looking more like lace on the edge. Am using stash yarn instead of my beautiful Waverly yarn. My husband is home in hospice care and I am his 24 hr/day nurse. He has had cancer for 20 years, so many surgeries and treatments. Now it is inoperable and there is no chemo that slows it down. Some days I have alot of time to sit and crochet, others no time to even breathe. I have always made small blankets and donated them to hospitalized veterans through the volunteer services, probably 6 so far this year. So I will donate this afghan to some group because looking at it will remind me of the hardest times, with all the frustration, anger and pain. When he is at peace I will complete my afghan because I really love what I chose and I can stitch it with good thoughts and memories in mind. Do I sound crazy, or does anyone else understand what I mean? Just looked at my post and realized how I rambled about my problems. But I don't feel like hitting delete either. Sorry if I depress anyone and thanks for Listening/ reading???
Yes, I can understand your 'rambling', and it is not rambling. You are speaking your heart and we are listening. I commited to this CAL while my Mom was in hospice, ordering the yarn and knowing that she would not be here to see it completed. Bless you for his care at home, you are a stronger person than I. You are in my prayers.
