My latest non-mini project

I've finished my first large knitting project! This is a baby afghan I made for a very dear friend. It's actually knitted strips with crocheted borders stitched together and then I crocheted a border around the whole thing. I started the original afghan several months ago and the longer I knitted the more I hated it. So I finally ripped the whole thing out and started over. Not only do I like the way this looks, it took a very short time to make.
Here's a closeup of the crocheted edging and the knitted stripes - I love yarn that forms itself into stripes. It looks like I worked even harder than I actually did, ;).
