Day 273/365: The Plan for the Cherry Cola Afghan

Leave a comment

9.30.2015

So here is what I’m doing with the Cherry Cola yarn that I unraveled the other day.  I still want it to be an afghan.  Since it turned out to be too stretchy and hole-y in crocheted form, I decided it would be better as knitted fabric.  I doubled the yarn to make it chunkier and started a simple basketweave pattern of alternating knitted and purled blocks.

The good news is that I’m getting a nice, smooth fabric that will serve as a soft, comfy blanket.

The bad news is– this is a large knitted piece of work and ohmygod, it will take me forever to finish.
