Praise the creative Maker for enabling me to finish this afghan so quickly, especially after the yarn fiasco, while still wife-ing a busy husband and mothering two boys. I love how this blanket turned out, and I had a hard time giving it up, but I was so excited for our church’s women’s retreat and glad to contribute in a way that the Lord has gifted me. It’s such a blessing to be able to use this aspect of His image in me for the building up of the body. Here’s how it turned out:
I used this tutorial, I’ve made another afghan with it and I was pleased both times. I love how neat and wavy it turns out. The directions don’t have any numbers, so I began with 140 stitches plus 3 for the turning chain. This ended up making an afghan that is 36 inches wide, just right for a cuddly couch blanket.
I had a great time making this, because I got to just pick colors that I like. Usually I make things as gifts or trying to use what I have on hand, and this time I got to go to the store and just pick colors that I like and that I think compliment each other. So much fun! Here it is all tied up and ready to go!
