The afghan he didn't like.

Well, here it is in all it's 150+ hour glory. It was supposed to have a crocheted border (although I think garter stitch would be or horizontal stripe of K and P rows would be better). He HAD to have it on the 26th, and I didn't have the time or inclination to spin anymore yarn, or knit more for him. Not worth the effort to complain...but I think it turned out gorgeous. It measures 4x4 as is, and is samoyed blended or plied with silk, wool, alpaca, or mohair (or chenille). All in all, there were 12 different yarns designed for it. I will get more sammy fur from a dog breeder and will knit the next one more open (but not for this guy...It will be for charity). That is the only change I would make to the design. This one is drapey, but more of a sweater weight in the end. Samoyed yarn has a surprising amount of memory. Enjoy.
