At the starting point anyway...
I wanted to make an afghan for my father-in-law and his wife for Christmas. But, I also wanted to be sure they liked it. So had my husband give them a call to see what color would work best with their decor. They preferred gold or rose,and I selected the latter to work with.
I'm going to be using Wool-Ease in Dark Rose Heather. It isn't as dark as it's showing up in the photo; we are having an overcast day here in Cincy.
The pattern I chose to do is the one on the front cover of the booklet. Isn't it pretty? It has an interesting stitch pattern in it called Celtic Weave that looks like a lot of fun.
I'm hoping to get started on this later today or tomorrow.
Looking forward to a fun and challenging new project to start out the Christmas crochet!
Hope you are having a great day!
