Adding to my pattern collection.

Aran Afghans to CrochetI hear we are supposed to have lots of snow this winter (and I'm hoping they are wrong) but in the interest of being cozy and warm I think there will be a few more afghans being made this winter.  Having seen the aran ghans that Heather (The Good Life) has made and the one she is making now ... is this magnificent ... gave me the courage to try the Holiday Cable throw that Red Heart has.  I have found it to be a fun work and so much easier then I anticipated.   So, I ordered the Arans Afghans to Crochet, a treat to myself and yes, I will have to make one in a color, just like Heather.

  2. Glor, I went and looked up that Holiday Cables Throw and it is just gorgeous. Can't wait to see yours. The pattern does look a little intimidating, so I'm glad to hear it is not as bad as it looks :)

  3. Oh you deserve a treat and that pattern book looks just awesome. :)

    I am still cross stitching, but when I get back into the hooky mood again, I am planning on picking back up the Holiday Cables Throw. I agree with you, it's a lot easier than you'd think and the videos on the designers blog help out if there are any questions.

    Wishing you a lovely day filled with many blessings :)

  8. Heather is one talented crocheter, as are you -- so I have no doubt you will master any new pattern in no time. Best wishes, Tammy
