It’s Crafturday! (13)

I finished the afghan inspired by the one my at my dad’s house which my Great Grandmother made. It was a good thing too, since the original has essentially disintegrated with age and use.

Here’s the original
Old Family afghan

And here’s my homage:
Grandma Meta Afghan

A detail:

And the whole blanket:

If I am to believe my Ravelry notes (which I am not terribly fastidious about), I used 15 skeins of Plymouth Encore, Valley Yarns Northampton, and a couple other random bits and bobs. The Northampton was by far the dominant yarn in the project. The afghan is nice and snuggly and is getting use on our sofa now that the heat wave has passed.

  1. I’ve made one similiar, years ago…this may be the push I needed to make another!

    I love that you’ve replicated an old favorite.

  2. I am also in love with the colors you chose for this. They just invite you to cuddle under them. I like the design on the bedspread below and they play so nicely together. Boy, now I am thinking about getting out the yarn and hooks. LOL! (hummingbird mind syndrome)
