Hello there! I hope all is well with you and your yarn :). We have had quite a relaxing week around here. Last weekend we had Monday off for MLK day so it was a great three day weekend, went to work Tuesday through Thursday, Friday was a snow day! Can’t get better than that :).
I should clarify…we live in North Carolina so it wasn’t much of a snow day as it was an ice day although we did get about an inch of snow. Since the entire town shuts down for events such as this we’ve been shut in since yesterday and I must say it has been nice. I was able to finish up my Angel Cloud Afghan and now will be able to officially use it just in time for this cold weather!
This afghan is crocheted using a granny ripple pattern with Lion Brand Homespun Thick and Quick yarn. It’s super soft makes up a thick luxurious blanket. This was my first time using this yarn, and although the first row was a little difficult because it was hard to distinguish between each individual chain and crochet into the correct one to get started, it was smooth sailing starting in row two.
**This pattern has been updated.**
