Annie’s Afghan

After a long day, my hubby and I like to have a quiet evening at home, often times watching Law and Order, Criminal Minds, or another “crime solving” show.   I enjoy knitting while I watch TV.  My time is spent “productively decompressing” rather than being wasted!

Anyway, I have been meaning to marry a simple knitting pattern with some inexpensive yet beautiful yarn:  perfect TV knitting.  I found the perfect match!  The pattern is the “reversible afghan” pattern.  You can find it at:  It is a very quick knit (2 hours a day for 2 weeks = completed afghan!).  This is the pattern, now how about the yarn?  The yarn I chose was Crystal Palace Kaya in color 105.  It is a bit expensive when knitting an afghan (20 balls), however, at it was marked down and I believe I only paid $44.00 for 20 balls!  My mother-in-law is always cold so now I have a trifecta:  perfect pattern, perfect yarn, perfect recipient.  Here is how it turned out!

The finished dimensions are 3 feet by 5 feet.  Perfect for her to snuggle under!  And look…..

it really is completely reversible!  I hope that every time she snuggles under it she remembers that her Ohio family loves her!

    What a pretty afghan! Love the slightly exaggerated cable and the soft color. I always wanted to learn to knit, but now that I have more time to do it, I don’t have the dexterity due to arthritis. Go figure!

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Following you here and on Pinterest too. Have a great week!
