Time to Stay Warm

posted in: Crochet | 3


As the end of October approaches, the days are getting chillier and it is time to stay warm with a new afghan.

This one was started at the beginning of the stay home time in mid March for covid19. I don’t like the term lock down, so have opted for stay home.

I used a Red Heart, Lasting Memories, pattern which was a free pattern I got a long time ago.

When the weather got really hot I gave up working on the afghan and just recently got back to working on it and finishing it off.

The pattern called for a fringe, but I decided to use one of the edges from the Crochet Borders book.

This is a craft book I’ve had for a long time and I frequently choose borders from it for my crochet projects.

The finished afghan fits a queen bed with no overhang on the sides, but it would fit a double bed really well. Or it is cosy enough to pull over you when relaxing on the couch.

Stay warm, and hopefully enjoy the extra hour of sleep when our clocks change this weekend.

      I also just finished a pair of socks. Right now I’m working on a knitted neck warmer and might try an old dickie pattern that I found. I have a big to do list as well, and just keep working at one or two things but adding three or four!! Not looking forward to the darker evenings with the time change, but there isn’t much to do about it.

    Hi Linda,
    This is beautiful. I found my shawl pattern and will start working on it now that the weather has cooled off. Did not feel like crocheting when the the temperatures were in the 90’s.

    I am going to make your recipe carrot sweet potato soup today. Looked good.

    Take care and be safe
