11-4-2019 Update Finished Country Apples Afghan (6)

~Dance o’ joy~
I finished my ‘Country Apples Afghan’.
It’s a lot prettier in real life.

Country Apples Afghan (Not Blocked)

*couple notes:
-My blanket’s unblocked finished size is 58″ x 44″. That’s 4 inches shorter and 4 inches narrower than the pattern mentions. My blanket might stretch to the pattern’s size if I blocked it or perhaps I should have used a bigger size hook.
-It’s curious that in the photo the cherry red in the edge looks burgundy, it’s the same yarn and color as the apples and checkered blocks.

I’m happy to have my ‘Country Apples Afghan’ finished, but I already miss not having it to work on.
Now, I’m in search of another project to catch my craft-fancy.

Wishing you all a week of pretty days and finished projects.

10-25-2019 Update Country Apples Afghan (5)

A few weeks ago, our area got its first frost of the season. Since then the temperatures have been on an uneven cooling spree. Some days are warm and other days are quite chilly. It gets down to almost freezing during the night. Cool weather puts me in the mood to do puzzles. Since my Country Apple Afghan granny squares are made and putting them together is kind of like a puzzle, I decided to put it together.

It took a couple weeks, but I’ve got the blocks and the borders made and ready to be joined together.

I like this pattern. I’m not fond of all the yarn-ends that have to be woven in, but hey it’s one of those necessary aggravations that come with yarn crafts.
I think this afghan is going to look pretty when it’s all joined and finished.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
