It’s Crafturday: 10

I recently spent a week in California hanging out with my dad while he recovered from an infection. It was brisk and sometimes snowy outside and I had few responsibilities other than to walk his dog and make meals. So, I got A LOT of crocheting done!

Grandma Meta's Afghan, and my homage in progress.

When I was at my dad’s last year, I decided that I loved this old afghan his grandmother had made and that I would make an homage to it. Here is the original with my version on top. I inadvertently made my stripes horizontal instead of vertical, but I don’t think it will adversely affect the character of the blanket. Since this photo I’ve even added a few more inches!

  1. Great colors and I love that you kept the original in mind while making yours…won’t that the fun to hand down to one of the kids many years from now?
