Afghan & Tractors

I love my afghan. Quite a bit more than I thought I would. The last couple of nights it has stormed and gotten chilly. The afghan has been the perfect blanket. Not too heavy to make me hot and large enough to cover my whole body. And it is sooooo soft.
I laid it on my bed when I was finished to check the sizing and wound up leaving it there and using it. I haven't weaved the ends in yet either! Oops. That is the plan for tonight during knit night. Weave in the ends. I used simply soft acrilyic yarn since living in this house I know that you must be able to launder blankets easily. Gracie sheds all year long. I still like the colors but now I like it so much that I'm kicking myself a bit for not using something else, paranoid that the acrylic yarn won't hold up and it will fall in apart in a year or so. I should know better. Thrift shops are filled with afghans that have held the test of time but I'm still a little paraniod. But not paranoid enought to stop using it before the ends are weaved in.
Camp update: I went online to see what the kiddos were up to yesterday. Looks like cabin activity were tractor rides. Can you spot Joy #1?
And this picture reminds me how handsome Joy #2 is. I forget when I'm around him all the time. :) Older women stop him all the time and admire his curls.

I'll be with them tomorrow! Man those 5 days by myself went fast!

It's nice that the camp posts pictures, so you can see the kids are doing.

hahaha for the longest time I was staring at that picture thinking...I can't see Joy#2 anywhere, I don't get it, I see Joy #1 but not Joy#2..you wouldn't believe how long I started trying to see if there was even an extra foot or something in the picture before I realized that I read your post wrong....
I clearly need to go to sleep now, because I can no longer read...or think.. ha!

When you are ready you will finish the ends. I do the same thing with the bindings on my quilts.
