This is my latest project. Morgan got into my stash of yarn the other day. She found a few different colors of wool that she thought looked nice. "Mommy, I LOVE the blue yarn" Then she begged for an afghan of her own. She found three colors and arranged them in the pattern that she wanted me to knit them.
Last year I made an afghan for Noah.
This one for Noah was made with the most horrible acrylic yarn that he picked out. The reason he loved it, was that it was bright red and very soft. He likes soft, very soft. So, I struggled through this horrid yarn doing the pattern that he picked out. I have to say that it is pretty. In the end, it is much shorter than it should be, but I couldn't take it anymore. He loves it, but is now complaining that it has holes in it from the pattern.
Morgan decided that she loved the yarn that Mommy had and wanted that. She didn't want any holes though. So, I'm tearing through this afghan for her. It will be as long as it can be with the yarn that I have. She found three colors and arranged them in the pattern that she wanted me to knit them. I think its pretty cool that my kids love getting an afghan made for them. It gives me something to do while they are taking swim lessons and gymnastics.
