Rocks and Rubies afghan rug

Recommended Posts

Hello, Voila an afghan I finished at the start of winter. I commenced this last year as I was keen to use up the pile of textured yarns I had purchased because they felt so snugly, but then never knew what to use them for.

 

I have call this Rocks and Rubies and it features a range of yarns within the rocky ruby red spectrum as well as a variety of textures. Some of the blocks use eyelash yarn, while others have a glint of gold. Must say I do like how it turned out.

 

The design is from my favourite book - 200 blocks by Jan Eaton.

I chose the more geometric blocks, and my hub loves it to bits. Some of the yarn (the flecky beige stuff) I had hoarded over 20 years ago from a jumper I once knitted. The oranges and reds are feather, boucle and other fluffy stuff from bargain bins.

 

Thanks for looking!
