Ivory Afghan

The other day I was visiting my Dad when I realized I had never taken a photo of this afghan I made Mom many years ago. It's solid ivory, not a color I use often but fit her decor and was what she requested. She asked me to make her a lacy, but not too lacy afghan when she bought a new sofa and love seat. She wanted something not too big to fit the back of the love seat to protect it against the rays that came in from a window. Not sure what stitch I actually used....can't remember, but it's crocheted shells of some sort.

Just thought I'd share this with you all. It's different then most of the afghans I've made through the years, in that it's more decorative. Normally, I make something for warmth both for family and all the ghans I've made for various charities through the years.

Laundry is calling my name, I'm trying to ignore it; but it's getting louder!

  3. What a nice ghan! I'll bet there are some good memories woven into those stitches. The color is a good all around color which matches many things so if surroundings change, it can still go well.

  6. Your blanket you made for your mum is lovely and it looks great on the sofa. I'm sure she loved it, not just because how it looked, but because you made it for her :)
