Thisis only my second afghan, and I am so proud of this one!” In response to a question about if she used the “join-as-you-go” technique: Imade each flower separately, making all of them before I started putting them together. I could pack yarn in my purse, and whenever I hada moment, I would work on them. I then sewed them together into strips, joining one end of each. Then Ican buzz along and sew all the strips together. That way as I’m joiningthem, I can weave in all the ends. I’m still learning, and I didn’t even realize until my last flower that my ‘single crochet’ stitch is actually just a slip stitch!” — Jasmine Foley
