I had a hard time figuring out how to get good pictures of this to show it off the best. I don't think I did a very good job but at least you get an idea of what it looks like.

It ended up being quite large. It was made from a kit and I was concerned I would run out of yarn before it was finished, as that has happened to me in the past. But I made it . . . . with only a small 2" ball of yarn left! That is really cutting it close!

I am writing this the middle of January, and the auction doesn't take place until February 4, so this is not being published until after the auction. I will let you know how well it does either as an update to this post or in a new post.

Just got the news that the afghan made $1000 for the church! I thank the gals that suggested this pattern as well as the color.


  1. What a lovely afghan Lorita. Your church was certainly blessed by your handy work.
    blessings, jill

    1. Thank you, Jill! It is a passion of mine, and love making something special for the church.

  2. That is so beautiful!! What a talent you have. I read your blog, but never comment. I am Karen and I live in a small town in Oklahoma.

  3. Karen, I am so happy to meet you! I love making new friends so I do appreciate that you left a comment to let me know you are out there with your kind words. I am not so sure I have talent, but rather at least 60 years of lots and lots of practice.


I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.
