New Afghan

I got the pattern and yarn from Willow Yarns. These are blocks that you add as you go along, the edging is rather frilly but I love the poofy flowers in each square.

Christmas Gifts

xmasMy brother and his wife raised one of their nieces as their own. This is her first year of college. I have never seen a kid so excited to go to school in my life!! She wanted something in her college colors. This is an over sized shawl and 1920’s flapper hat. I kind of made these up as I went along. The shawl has some nice stich work but it’s hard to see with the two color yarn. Oh well, she said her dorm was cold so this might help.

I don’t usually do yarn projects but I loved this yarn. It is very soft and I thought the colors were cool. I actually found the yarn at Big Lots so I bought it all. This is for my Step Daughter for Christmas since she liked the colors so much. It is my own very simple pattern of:

Make a chain as long as you want the throw to be but end in an even number. Do a double crochet, chain one in every other chain, turn and double crochet chain one in the top of the previouse chain one spaces. Keep doing that until it’s the size you want. I made an edging of chain 5 loops around the whole throw. Nice for watching TV on a chilly nite!!
