Merry Kringle Finished At Last

I loved the Christmas colors in my Merry Kringle throw.  

I mostly made up the edging as I went except for the last yellow, blue and green rounds I used an edging from one of my pattern books.  I didn't like the stitching the pattern used on the last round of red so I changed it.   

That's what I love about crocheting - it is so easy to modify.

Another look at the colorful edging.

I can hardly wait to display this beautiful throw at Christmas time!  

Here you can see the large 36 center granny squares surrounded by the solid small granny squares and then the edging.

I finished Merry Kringle just we were winding up our road trip to Alaska. 

Unfortunately, I've been under the weather with a nasty cold since arriving home Friday.  I've had a couple sleepless nights but luckily have been able to sleep during the morning hours when my coughing has lessened.

I'm wishing everyone a Happy Labor Day here in the USA!  Don't forget to fly your Stars and Stripes!
