I FINALLY finished the afghan I started 3 years ago. At least, I think it was 3 years. It could have been more. At that time, angry chicken made her own ripple stitch blanket, and I was so inspired to make my own that I ordered the book 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns and dove right in. Then, I got bored and decided to do something else while my afghan sat in a plastic bag on the back of a shelf in my office. Don't roll your eyes. You've done something similar.
It's the first afghan I've ever made. If I gave you a full view, you would see it's lopsided because my stitches started out tight and loosened up toward the end. It's mostly because I started with one hook for the first 6 rows and finished the rest with another, but whatever. It still works. Plus, you can't tell it's lopsided at all when it's rumpled up in a ball on the floor next to the couch while the dog lays on it.
