Navajo Afghan

...is done!  It only took me three years and nine months (less one day), lol.  I started this for the "Smoke Signals CAL" at Crochetville, August 12th, 2007.  And I finished it today.  This was just about the only thing I wanted to work on when Portia got hit.  And then I just kept getting closer to being done, and wanted to finish it.   It fits my son's twin bed. (Excuse his messy room~ this actually looks good :/  to be honest..)   It goes all the way up to the top of the bed, and hangs down a bit at the end. So it's a good size.

The diamond pattern.   My son says he wants one like this now. (Yeah, right..)  I said "I crocheted you an afghan, don't you remember?" "Where?" "Right there, on the floor. You never even use it."   (He wants everything I crochet..)

 I was trying to find the one someone had started in this CAL, as a scrapghan. I don't think she ever made a whole afghan, but turned it into a doggy blanket.   I thought someone else had made another version of this using scraps, too. I don't know. 

Just for fun, I took a picture of all the ends I cut off from the fringe. I don't want to throw it away, it seems wasteful. (I know, I'm weird...)  I might use it for stuffing for a bear or something.  :P    You can find the pattern for the afghan here: Navajo Indian Multi-Colored Aghan

Thank you Lea and Paula. Paula, I did a search on Ravelry last night; to see what other color combinations people have done with this pattern. I saw a few done as baby blankets, and I think it would be perfect for that. :)
