Sarafia Finish and a Start

IMG_2703Sarafia CAL all done and here she is ...
IMG_2707washed, dryed and ready for delivery.  Forty-eight squares, two rows of edging with the first being just a double crochet, the second row consisting of  two single crochets and a shell of five double crochets, measures 67 X 48 inches.

IMG_2717I used Loops & Threads, Impeccable worsted acrylic yarn.  Most of from my stash with a few more purchases to complete.  Following the washing this is amazingly soft.  I really enjoyed this pattern and am thinking of making another for myself for the bed.  Maybe just one square; one great big square.

I was trying to decide what colors to use for the bed and realized I was looking at this pillow which I love and the colors in it.
 So I had to take a look at the stash and what do you think I found.  Pretty much the same colors ... here's the yarn against the back of the pillow.

IMG_2714Stay tuned for the winter project!

Hope your weekend is wonderful.
