It's taken me two weeks to get this Afgan finished. I normally would have had it finished quicker but this one took so much longer. Being here at my daughters with all the living that is done in this house, well you can imagine how hard it would be to sit. I've been having such a good time with my grandsons and sitting still has not been in the picture. The spot for the Afgan when I must get up was on the carpet, near my seat on the sofa. The words seemed to echo around the house, "Don't touch grandma's crochet" and when one child sees me coming they quickly run from the room.
I found this (stitch) pattern on the PBS Show "Knitting Today". It was so easy to do and made for a nice design.
Once I completed the size needed I used a simple edging to go around and finish it off.
I think I started something. My daughter loves it and said, "Mom, there are 5 of us in this house and we will be fighting over it once the cold weather sets in"....hmmm? guess I need to make a few more! I told her she needed some color this time since her furniture is all greys and browns. "How bout Orange", I said.
We will see after I get home?
After the hot dry summer we all have been having I for one am looking forward to the chilly evenings and wrapping up in a cozy Afgan sounds heavenly, don't you think?
Well my visit here in OKC is winding down and I'll be flying early this weekend. Time to think about packing all the stuff I've gathered here. Wish I could put my kids in the suitcase along with me but I'll be back in the Spring for another wonderful visit. Hopefully one not as quick as this visit seems to have been. But then most trips come and go so fast!
I'm thinking of all the weeds in my garden and how tall they must be. I'll be busy next week....
