Knitted Sampler Afghan Completed

Hi! I'm a retired Bridal Designer, and am now spending my time getting back to pleasure crafts! My husband and I are still newlyweds, nearing our 3rd anniversary on October 2. I was single 33 years! We moved across the country from Phoenix Arizona, to Lumberton N. Carolina. The slower lifestyle agrees with us! Both empty-nesters, Jim and I are finishing the work on the 1950's bungalow style cottage. Fortunately, this home has a huge addition.... adding about 40% to the original size. Having to quit the sewing trade due to a disability, I spend my time on projects for home, family, and pleasure- as I feel able. Jim, now a Pastor/Judeo Christian Rabbi; is retired from the tile trade, and currently joins his friend in local ministry. This includes a bible study twice a week at a local prison. Join us as I document the journey in our changing lives!

  1. I made this sampler afghan for my friend, Valerie. I wanted her to feel loved when she snuggled up in it!
    I used a vintage 60's pattern book. The book has 100 stitches, I used 35 of them.
    My final selection of yarn was slightly different from this yarn photo. I eliminated the yellow, pale blue, and used 3 of each color family, wherever I could. I wish I could make another one for myself, in my own colors!
    Maybe next year?
