My enormous afghan

I just thought I would post something about my favorite afghan.  This is probably one of the most convincing reasons people should check gauge before knitting, however despite my grievous error, I love the results.  This blanket suits our family perfectly in spite of its crazy dimensions.  This afghan measures approximately 4 ft by 6 ft, the longer being the width.  This is a favorite for the kids because no one gets left out on the couch, no need to worry it covers everyone’s laps.  My husband, who is over 6 ft tall, likes to lay under because it actually covers his tall frame.  My least favorite part, has nothing to do with the blanket itself, as much as how difficult the last foot was to knit due to the weight of this wool blanket.  I think I like it all the more, because of the perseverance it required to finish.
