4 hour Bias Baby Afghan

The afghan that was to take 4 hours took around 12. Ugh!! First I screwed up in the beginning and had a loop handing. First time with 25mm needles and 4 strands of yarn together. I've done 2 and 3 but first time for 4. Soooo, I am knitting and knitting. Decreasing looking pretty good but the loop. I'm over 3 quarters the way done and I see these. Aaaaaawwwwwwwww! Holes! How the hell it happened I don't know. Can you say rip it, rip it, rip it.
Now I have started this a second time and I am almost done again. But! I am running out of one of the varigated colours. So, what's a girl to do. Rip it, rip it back to the half way mark and start yet again. I took out a few extra rows out and proceed to the finish line. Go figure I had extra yarn left when I was done! Maybe I deleted one two many extra rows. It is done and wrapped and ready for the baby shower tomorrow. There was suppose to be fing pom poms on the four corners but hubby thought it might not be good for a baby. He thinks the holely blanket might not be good as they can put their fingures through it. Well its a new pattern for me and my usual one takes a month to do. I only had 15 days to do this and I know it wouldn't off been done for tomorrow.

Well off to bed. Anyone got any ideas for the left over Homespun yarn.
