this is typically how an afghan starts out for me. I roll all the yarn needed into easy to handle balls that don't tangle up while in use. this afghan will be a double strand thickness and will be crocheted in sections. then each section will be hand sewn onto the next to form a pattern. it took me abouyt 4 hours to roll all the yarn. if i feel like it tonight i will start crocheting the sections, if not then I will start them tomorrow. this afghan will take me a while to complete.
