Do you remember the Ravelry crochet-along afghan squares I posted each month last year? Guess what – they’re all joined together! The ends are all woven in! It is FINISHED!
24 squares, each using a ball or so of Cleckheaton Vintage Hues 100% wool.
Joined using Bendigo Woollen Mills 12ply Rustic, in the colour Midnight Tweed. The joining method is Priscilla Hewitt’s Flat Braid Join (there are even videos on YouTube that demonstrate how this is done) and the edging is Chris Simon‘s standard edging (found under the Afghan Joining Hints link on her blog). I used over 3 big balls of the Rustic – that’s over 600 grams just to join and edge! And each of the 24 squares was a 50g ball – go on, do the maths! That’s a big, heavy, warm blanket.
Although I’ve photographed it on the spare bed it’s actually living on the couch. Perfect for winter nights! Here’s another photo, just because I love it.
Thanks for the birthday wishes and the thoughtful comments on my last post! I’m really interested in your opinions on how we see things and how our views change. I’m still pondering. And contemplating colour.
