And the funniest part?
I have stats.
16,747 (approx) yards of yarn
And the most impressive stat of all…
~after 1st shrinking wash~
We’re going to give it the 2nd shrinking wash today. I fully expect that it will have decreased by 1/3 in size…but we absolutely love it.
This has been my ALL-TIME FAV afghan ever.
And I don’t usually say things like that, because let’s face it afghans take forever to make and if the stitch, yarn, or pattern is a bore/hassle/frustration, I’m just satisified the experience is over. This one was pure bliss all the way around.
I loved the yarn:: Knit Picks Palette (they don’t pay me btw, but they have been PIVOTAL in changing my mind regarding fibre choice & I will most definitely purchasing from them again. Just sharing my personal thought as a customer.)
I loved the stitch:: ch, sl st, dc (can you say mindless so I can watch seasons of Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, and tons of football??)
I loved the pattern:: 14 round grannies/join as you go (I could always keep a square or 2 in my purse with me)
The finished product is exactly what I was looking for. Warm and squishy, soft and cozy, and my very first large-scale 100% wool blanket.
I love it when a project is successful. I’ve decided this is a family heirloom.
My son asked me how much time & money I spent on it. So I told him & showed him my stats.
Then he asked:: Why didn’t you just buy a new comforter?
He is no longer in the will.
