I finished the third afghan last night. This evening I threw all three in the wash to soften them up a bit. When I pulled them out of the dryer I was happy with how soft and cozy they are.
And then I saw this:
and my heart nearly stopped.
I used the "magic circle" method of starting each square. It held really well for all of the squares except the ones that were started with the pink yarn. It's shiny and slippery and ... all 40 squares that were started with this yarn have come apart at the center. I have started repairing them by running a piece of yarn through with a blunt needle and knotting it really tightly but it's taking a long time. I have repaired 8 or 9 of them in the last hour...
I see my niece and nephews tomorrow.
I might not see them again before Christmas.
This is the only present I have for my niece.
I have to be at work tomorrow.
I want to cry a little.. :(
I'm exhausted and going to bed now and will just have to find the time to fix it and get it to her before they leave the city on Sunday.
