Elizabeth's May progress update

The Q2 Challenge has entirely taken over my gift-knitting, which I decided isn't an entirely bad thing, since it's a very ambitious project to begin with. This post is going be about only this project, since I've barely touched anything else (gift-wise) since I started it.

Gift Item: Q2 Challenge! Striped Chevron Afghan by Spinrite (ravelry project link)
Pattern: available through the way-back machine (ravelry link)
Source: Designs for America by Solutia
Recipient: my parents
Occasion: Christmas
Deadline: December 25, 2008

Other info: I only just finished the latest strip (sewing it together as I go) and think I'm going to start on a green strip next. I really hope I can finish this by the end of June. This project is about 35% done.



It will (hopefully) look like this in the end:

You've still got several weeks left and you are SO SMART to sew as you go. I believe you can do it!
