Finish Line! Mr. Woodhouse' Afghan
I have crossed the Finish Line for the Giant Slamon-ghan Event in the 2010 Ravelympics, on behalf of Team Austenacious. Minor injuries to my fingers, sore wrists, and a very, very suspicious disappearance of 1 skein of yarn 3/4 of the way through (resulting in an emergency room trip to the yarn store) but "Mr. Woodhouse Afghan" is done! All of the family, human and feline, are very happy with this afghan, and will snuggle under it to watch the rest of the Winter Olympic Games.

This warm and cozy afghan is named in honor of Mr. Woodhouse from the novel “Emma,” who was always very chilly.
