This is beautiful. Sorting out my yarn tonight, I'm pretty sure I have enough in my stash for the whole thing and hopefully will be done in time for Christmas. I have so many things on the go right now and this will be a 'motif between projects' Afghan. :)

This is a wonderful afgan. Very beautiful. The only problem I had was being left handed. So I had to make adjustments.
