I work on the college afghan at night. For one thing, it’s mindless and for another, it’s huge. I don’t know what I was thinking. This afghan is huge by my standards, measuring 48″ x 66″. The kid is happy though, and that’s what matters.
All week, while knitting, I kept thinking I was having hot flashes. That was until it dawned on me that I have a ginormous pile of bulky, woolen afghan in my lap. There is only so low I can set the air conditioner before freezing my family out.
It took 14 skeins Cascade 128 (Bulky: 100% Superwash Wool, 128 yards) of the main color, Deep Sapphire, plus one skein each of the Burgundy and White.
I turned the final corner of border.
Just when I thought I was done and my ends were all woven in, my husband suggests embroidering her initials onto the afghan. He makes a good point, kind of like labeling your kid’s belongings for camp. But… I… was… done. This is the kind of thing that lands me in procrastination station.
Happily I also finished my Noro Log Cabin Afghan. I LOVE how this came out. I’m psyched to see how other people’s afghans turn out in the class. The afghan measures 38″ x 50″, a perfect size.
I love both afghans and am super impressed that you were able to complete them over the summer! I'm almost finished with the blocks of my Noro Log Cabin. I love working on it and can't wait to snuggle in it this winter!
