The afghan

12/14/02: The beginning




03/12/04: The end






The afghan has 48 crocheted squares, each with a different stitch pattern. It uses 6 colors of Red Heart acrylic yarn (red, purple, pink, black, 2 colors of variegated).

It's dedicated to my cat Selkie, who died in January 2003.

I'll post better images later.

I doubt this booklet is still in print, but when I googled for it, I found a spinner's organization that claims to have it in their library: http://pages.prodigy.net/bwitters/library/crochet.htm

Ooo, that's pretty! I can imagine a beloved cat curling up on it. It's probably all soft and smells of the queen-human.

That's lovely.

And LJ's being weird. It claimed this was a protected post when I clicked the "Read Comments" link.

That happened in my journal this morning, too. I'm actually glad to see you say this, because I was afraid my tweaking to try to screen out LJspam had screwed something up.

Gorgeous afghan. Simply gorgeous. Makes me want to wear it ...

Wow! It's wonderful! I like how it's so different from square to square but still doesn't look haphazard.
