My Granny made this afghan. I just love looking at this picture. I didn't even know it existed until a couple of years ago when my sister in San Diego sent me this picture. My Granny gave it to her years ago. I've always wanted to make one of these snowflake patterns into an afghan, but just never started. Maybe I should.
I was really tempted to show you a picture of the afghan I'm working on. It's about 2/3 to 3/4 finished, and it is SO PRETTY! I think this is going to be a favorite of mine. I didn't want to spoil the fun of the Ta-Dah by showing it to you now, so I decided to show you my Granny's afghan instead. I think about 4 more evenings of crocheting and weaving in ends should do it. This one won't have an elaborate border because the body really stands on its own. I can hardly wait!
P.S. Look up at the bar right underneath my blog header picture. There's the snowflake pattern! I'm feeling all smarty-pants because I figured out how to do it. (Rant: And I put it here for FREE because someone on Ravelry is trying to sell the pattern for $2.00. Seriously, lady? I figure if she can sell it for a profit when she didn't write it, then I can give it away for free! I swear, some people would sell their mother for a buck. I guess I'd just give her away. LOL. Not really, Momma!)
