Notes

I added one more point than the pattern calls for and will make it a bit longer to accommodate the extra width.

Aug 2011 - Ugg… I do believe this project is going to end up as a UFO if I don’t get my rear in gear! It was intended to be a Christmas gift last year… then I thought “oh well… it can be his birthday present.”
WRONG! His birthday his almost here and I still haven’t made any progress. :( I guess I’ll try for Christmas again…

Nov 2012 - Okay, I’m determined to finish this &%$# thing once and for all!!

Dec 5, 2012 -

A. Sticking a fork in it ‘cuz I’m DONE!!

B. The happiness rating is for the fact that I’m done!

C. I’m glad he’ll be using this on his bed because I don’t ever want to see it again! LOL

This was an easy pattern, but you have to be mindful of your stitch counts. I found that I couldn’t do this while watching tv as I kept losing track of where I was in the pattern repeat.
