When Vince and I were in Canada for my mother-in-law Gloria's funeral service, my father-in-law Norm gave me a tote bag with a lapghan in it that Gloria had been working on. No one else in the family crochets, so it was given to me to finish.
When we got home, I looked through the yarn that was left and added a few more rows to the ends and then worked 2 rounds of sc as a border. The small scraps of yarn, 2 crochet hooks (I made the blue and white hook for Gloria a couple years ago), yarn needles and scissors were put into a large jar. I just couldn't see myself throwing them away.
And here is the finished lapghan - it will be on Vince's side of the bed. (the lapghan measures 37" x 52")
