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.
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.
