My afghan ten years in the making has gotten many new squares. I can even crochet now while watching television.
Here is my progress. While I think I have evened out my tension considerably, you can see a wide variance.
Also note the frayed looking square on the lower right. I think the Cat must have found it tasty one night. Luckily I can just add a new row of black. And I'll keep the squares in my craft room for safety when I'm not working on it.
Everything needs that one row and an edging. I've never done an edging but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to figure it out now after several months of crochet immersion.
