This past summer I decided that I wanted to knit the kids blankets for Christmas. They are always fighting over the one I made back in 2010
, and I thought this would be a great gift because it would be their very own
. There was only one problem. Texas must have had the hottest summer ever. With over 40 days of 100+ degree temps, breaking records, and causing a major drought, only a crazy person would start knitting an afghan. I wasn’t crazy. (Although if you read my post on the afghan I made in 2010, you would see that I finished it in 100 degree heat. What is my deal with knitting afghans in the summer??)
So I waited. And waited. And waited. I finally started his cabled afghan the end of September (even though it was still quite warm) and finished it in about 6 weeks (how I did that I don’t know). I love the Loops and Threads Charisma yarn in red, and the cables definitely give it some masculine style. What’s more important is that the recipient absolutely loves it. The photo below was staged and all his idea. 🙂
Linking up with Jennifer @ Studio JRU for Sneak Peek Friday. Look for another afghan post next week!
