Friday is here!


So Friday is finally here! But we have a very busy weekend ahead of us.
As you can see above I was able to add a little more work to the ribbon afghan.
I found another darker purple and decided to go ahead and add it in as well. So far I think I like the addition.

For those of you thinking about making this.... And you are worried about weaving in all those ends...
Heres an idea for you. Instead of worry about weaving in the ends. What about turning them in too fringe?
The actual pattern does not include aborder. I am just going to add one on. So, if you like afghans with fringe it wouldn't be such a task at the end. Or if you don't want the fringe, just crochet the ends in as you go. I could have done that. LOL! But I decided to wait.




 Even though I wasn't going too.... I did start yet another project.... I found some really pretty purple Kashmere and decided to make another Prayer Shawl. I didn't have enough of the purple so I added in some white. This one will be going to a friend of mine at church. Her favorite color is purple.
I do like this yarn, it is super soft. Unfortunatly Bernat discontinued it. :( Luckily before it was gone, I did get a bunch of it. I just never thought to get a larger amount of each of the colors. Next time I will know better. :)


Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

all of your projects are always beautiful! my mom received a prayer shawl while my dad was in iraq (yes, my dad! i think 60 year old men have no business running around in the desert, but whatever) and it meant so much to her! it was a great comfort to her while he was away
