I'm knitting and assembly as I go. The prospect of all those seams and worse, all those loose ends, is daunting and can be discouraging. Assembly-as-you-knit is the answer for me. I'm so married to this self-encourager technique that I now choose the next block to knit based on the next one I can assemble.
Also I started the left border. It's knit in a strip and -- groan -- sewed on to the finished afghan. Same for the right border. Then the top and bottom are picked up on a long circular needle. By that time you will be hearing my cheering no matter where you are on the globe.
And so it goes. Pinwheel in the center with a variety of colors and shapes around in quilt-like fashion. I'm persevering. The original shipping box still has skeins of yarn and I have at least one block on my favorite Brittany birch US#8 needles. Two of the 6" dpn US#8's are carrying the border. I am knitting and sewing and weaving and clipping and lions and tigers and bears, oh no. (Just to see if you're reading to the end.)
Though sometimes I feel like a spinning pinwheel.
