    tunisian graph 'ghan

    Thank you, that does help. I know it's a dumb question. I hadn't thought of crocheting around the panels. I have a few of the long flexible hooks but they didn't seem long enough for the width or length of the average afghan. So, I was looking at Home Depot and Lowes for thin tubing that could fit snugly on the end of my hook and some way to block the end. I suppose I will have to work in pieces. That many stitches at once would drive me crazy. Thanks for your help.

    tunisian graph 'ghan

    This has probably been answered somewhere... I keep seeing these beautiful tunisian graph afghans that are worked in pieces. How do you sew the pieces together without getting some kind of seam? I just might not be seeing a seam but they all look like they are done in one piece. I had one planned but was trying to figure out how to make a homemade tunisian hook that was long enough to do it in one piece. I think that might actually make me insane.

    Well after letting this sit on my couch for months on end again, I am almost finished. I am sewing the smaller heptagons on right now. I will be so happy when I am finally finished. It's been 2 years of on/off work. I really need to learn how to concentrate.

    Hats for boxing Day ?

    Count me in. I've been messing around with a baby blanket for the past few days with no one to give it to. I just love making them. I'm going to try to find somewhere to donate my things to. Maybe I'll try some hats too. Believe it or not, I've never made one. I'd also like to make a few things for the soldiers as well but I like to keep things small. :-)

    I love this. I always thought those ghosts were cute.

    When using a graph

    I get what you are saying. When I did my last one, I would just snip it and join new yarn later. It makes for more ends but it's either that or carry the yarn which is a pain and can make it bulkier in spots than it needs to be.

    sewing ends

    Thank you everyone! I guess I should just slow down and sew as I go. Its just so intimidating if you wait until the end.

    sewing ends

    Is there an easier way to do this? Nothing frustrates me more than finally finishing a project and having a million ends to sew in. I know you can supposedly crochet over them but I feel like they would come out. I've also tried this on the starghans and misc things and they always show laying across the stitches. Is it possible to crochet over them with a dc or in a granny?

    I've compared the newer patt with the errors listed in this thread and they seem to have fixed them. I think I might have found one but I'm not sure. It could just be my awful math skills and not having paid attention close enough in that round.

    I have finally picked this back up after months of it sitting in a cube beside the couch. Hopefully I will be able to finish it before the year anniversary of starting it. I forgot how much I liked this pattern. I almost want to make another when this is done... If only I didn't have so many WIPs and such.

    Raccoon, your ghan looks amazing. I just love the center of it. Juliey, the color selection on yours is beautiful. Can't wait to see it finished. Unfortunatetly I had to put mine down for a while to work on a few baby items (including a blanket that may just kill me), for my boss. LOL

    I was having a problem with the valleys as well. What I found helped a lot, was to mark the slip stitches on both ends. That helps you to be able to see on the round if you are off immediately. Also, after a certain point, there are always 5 black stitches, with one dc on either side and then a decrease. There is always a hdc in the slip stitch, so its just a matter of filling in the rest with dc. I also kept in the stitch markersl so I could see them as a reference point on the next round. I put it down for a while after the valleys, so we will see later if that helps. Hope that helps.

    I'm on those peaks and valleys as we speak and I see what you mean. LoL and I am going to have to frog one.

    I would take a picture of it but I don't think it will show well being its black yarn and light blue against it. I don't think the indiv. stitches would show. Where I am having the problem is in where to put the final slip stitch. If my drawings that I have done to try to figure this out are correct, it should be in the first stitch going down the side of the hexagon, after the corner. I'm so confused because the next row starts 10 stitches after the last stitch of the half circles. I'm so glad there is a thread on this project because I would be lost without it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
