First Christmas afghan finished!

Recommended Posts

This year I decided to make afghans for my brother and his wife, and my sister and her husband. I'd made this same pattern before, using orange, black and white (school colors) to football games, etc. I really liked how it came out, and thought it would work well in Christmas-sy colors. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Burgundy, Dark Sage and Soft White. I opted not to put the fringe on it. I think it's fine without it. (If you're interested, I have pictures of the first one in my album.) The pattern is from a Leisure Arts book - Afghans A to Z. This is the "W" one - "Winter Warmers."

Very nice! I guess I can start thinking about Christmas gifts now. As Esta said, a nice pattern you can adapt easily with different colors for totally different looks. WTG, :santa 's elf! Patty

A Christmas afghan done in March?? I thought those weren't supposed to be started until December 21st so you have to stay up all night Christmas Eve and be too tired the next day to care if the recipient likes it or not. Ok, that's just me.:lol Your afghan is very nice and I agree it's great without fringe. And congratulations on getting it done so early in the year.
