Afghan

Here's my new afghan - made of wool hand spun, dyed, and woven by my very own mother!

Nice, huh? And very cosy.

Matches the living room perfectly, where it will decorate the back of the couch when not required to warm one of the residents while she reads the Sunday paper. Temps were in the 70s today but we're expecting several more snows this spring, so wool is still quite seasonable.

(Sadly, I'm having a hard time getting a decent picture of it. Is my camera bad, or is it just that I don't know how to use it well? On some settings the blues came out brighter and scarier than on the creatures below, which they are not...)

Okay I though you were messing with my mind because yesterday picture wasa much brighter blue afghan. I though this morning, "Oh her mother made her two!" before reading.

yeah, face-to-face (face-to-blanket?) it is bluer than this, not as blue as that!

My mother did make two... but one is for Megan. I got mine first by using shame and nagging. Do the ends justify the means? 'Cause I really like my blanket!
