I have completed a few fun and colorful crochet projects this winter// hearts + poms, crochet hook cases, iPhone cases, cozy cowls, & a cotton Ripple blanket. The project that has been on my lap all winter, keeping me warm and urging me on to completion, is finally DONE!. Yippee!! This is a Granny Ripple that I modeled after Attics 24's granny pattern.
When I began this afghan, I wanted it to be wide enough to snuggle under with one of my Teens or Sweet Hubs. Once I settled on a width though, I realized it was going to have to be pretty long as well to balance out the size// so this baby is weighty and big.
Light gray yarn was my base with alternating two rows of multiple colors. This project will forever remind me of this LONG and cold winter in the Midwest. With the snow days and more time indoors than I can remember in winters past, this was the perfect season to attempt a bigger crochet project.
My oldest son even likes the way it turned out, and it may end up on his bed next winter. And I like the idea of having a handmade heirloom to pass on to my Teens.
How have you been spending your winter days??
