Do you remember way back in October mentioning I was working on some fall colored scrap afghans? It started life as my work demo project for Michael’s – at the time I didn’t have samples for classes I needed to work on, so I could crochet anything I wanted. I’ve discovered that my crocheting (or knitting) generates much more interest & excitement if I use LOTS of bright colors, so this was the project to take. And in November I shared a couple of finished afghans with you.
Well I finally managed to complete, finish weaving in the yarn ends, & photograph the last one… which was made using just the main motif, and not the two smaller ones, so it’s more of a regular afghan than a “quilt”.
I joined these using one of those methods that helps to make a bigger afghan, and tried to add a decent size border as well, in order to get a decent size lapghan.
The final size ended up about 35″ by 43″ – a little small, but OK.
It’s been added to the afghan donation pile – which thinking of, I’ve dropped off two bags worth of afghans so far, with two more bags to go. When I say bags, I mean STUFFED FULL of afghans, at least 20, is in each bag. Lots of warm laps!
I also finished a while back, but finally blocked & took photos of my knitted New Edge, using scrap purple sock yarns
And while I have your attention, if you missed it, there’s still lots of time to join us in our crafty book challenge! Won’t you please join us & help spread the word?
I’m also doing feature & follow Friday this week…
the question is…
Who is your favorite villain from a book?
I instantly thought of Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations (the book, not the movie), but I think my all time favorite would be He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named from Harry Potter. Of course.
