Hilary's Afghan

I made this for one of my best friends. Hilary received this on St. Valentine's Day as a token of my love for her. She's been there when most would have ran screaming in the other direction! We have been close for over 20 years.

Pattern Source:
Name Squares: Instead of garter stitching the letters, I did them in stockingnette stitch and did the Intarsia technique.

Other Squares: From the book "Learn to Knit Afghan" by Barbara G. Walker

Needle size: US 10
Yarn: worsted weight 100% acrylic
Time invested: approx. 150 hours.

Thank you Hilary! You are such a wonderful friend!
