Today my parents celebrate 35 years of marriage. I want to tell them so many things, but above all I hope they enjoy their time together for many, many more years. I love you both!
I wanted to do something really special for them this year, so I chose to make them an afghan. I chose the pattern and the colors to (hopefully) compliment their decor and style. I made it lightweight enough to snuggle under in those brutal California winters. And then I held my breath as I put it in a box and shipped it to California, only breathing again when it landed yesterday afternoon. Here’s hoping they enjoy it!
The pattern: Log Cabin Moderne by Mason Dixon
The Yarn: Elsbeth Lavold Sily Wool
The Needles: US 6’s
The Verdict: Love the simplicity of the style and the ease of knitting, even if the garter stitch gets a little tedious on the larger squares. Will definitely be knitting this one again!
