Moss Stitch Crocheted Afghan Finish

Last May I started crocheting
an Afghan using an easy to do 
Moss Stitch
and wrote about it 
Today I went into my dashboard to check on how many view
that post has received so far
and was shocked to see over
3,700 hits!
I guess crocheting attracts more of an audience than I ever imagined.

This Moss Stitch Afghan was so easy to make!
 I worked on it a little bit here and there
and now have a finish.
I really am a beginning crocheter.  The only skill required was a chain stitch and single crochet.
Very relaxing and required very little thought.
 Using bits of leftover balls of yarn
I alternated each row with a different color
which gave the Afghan a scrappy look.
 Finished size:
58" X 61"
Just the right size to fold over the top of a couch.
 The bright happy colors make me smile :)
This will be a comfy throw
to snuggle under during the cold winter months.
 A Christmas present for a family member.

Hi Nedra~~That is a stunning afghan! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Such a great way to use up odds and ends of yarn skeins--but what do you do with all those pesky ends??? Would hate to have to weave in all that. I am never happy with how it looks afterwards, and looks like the tails would show because of all the changes of colors. But it is just gorgeous. So nice to have met you in Houston this year. Have been following your blog for a while and really enjoy it.

Yep, Carol was thinking same thing as me--ALL THOSE ENDS!! Ugh, I've never had any real success in getting those ends woven in and having them STAY woven in. For that reason, I try to make as few color changes as possible.
