Cathedral Rose Window - completed!

Crocheting is one way I keep sane. I needed so much sanity this weekend that I finished the CRW. Really, it should have taken another 2 weekends, but I was working at it furiously.


This is what it looked like on Friday night.

Here it is completed (even the ends are woven in). It measures 85"...over 7 feet!

I'm glad to have it finished in July, since it wasn't done by July.

Today is Pi's birthday. Can't believe she's eight!

I know I've seen your Cathedral WIP pics before, but I am blown away by the FO! Gorgeous work and I really think the blue babysoft was a good choice. The colors work very well. Congrat on finishing (and happy birthday to your daughter!)

GORGEOUS! I am amazed at your ability to stick with it too! Honestly, that has to be one of the most beautiful crocheted items I have ever seen. You should enter that in a state fair or something, it needs a blue ribbon!

Oh wow, that is just stunning! A real masterpiece! I'm amazed at your patience and dedication to such a huge project - I have no patience for afghans!

Happy belated birthday to Piper and congratulations to you for making through 8 years of mommyhood. :)

That afghan looks amazing. I'd say you should frame it, except I bet that it weighs a ton and you'd never end up hanging it. XD
