Finishing Up the Bernat Star Afghan

It took two months of knitting, with only three rows of purling at the very end. Now, it's finally complete! I finished weaving in all the ends today, and ran it through a cold rinse cycle with fabric softener in the washing machine.

Here's how it looked before blocking:

Next, I needed to block it. After placing my usual blocking pad on my bed, I put the afghan on it, and realized that it was too large to block there. So, I just pinned it on the wall! Ha! (The wall will be worked on this year anyway, during our house repair work.)
