I love afghans like Smoky loves Temptations. That’s legit a lot. So what’s a person to do when they get bored?
Obviously the only right answer is to pull out a book specifically on afghans and make one.
Do you have a favorite type? I always say I like those super modern, fancy afghans or the antique bedspreads from crochet cotton.
But what I really love is acrylic, classic granny square afghans in that awful 70’s green and orange. You know you love them too. They smell like grandma’s house and chihuahuas.
FUN FACT: I have an old skein of this color. Unfortunately only one. And yes, it smells like chihuahuas.
I also prefer knitting over crochet. Now, that’s not anything I can help, and I also can’t help that knitting is actually painful. So I’m glad this book is crochet. I know I’m working on The Beekeeper’s Quilt, but it’s knitting and my shoulder was yelling at me after one. And I haven’t even finished swatching sizes and colors!
Shhh. Super secret.
WHAT IS THIS LIFE!?
Sometimes I get overwhelmed. Even by the things I love the most. It’s a damn shame too.
