Here is one of my favorite photobombs ever… I was in the back yard trying to get a picture… It was fairly cold and sprinkling a bit…  My daughter was out with me all wrapped up in her favorite blanket and of course… Charlie made sure to be in the photo as usual!  When we saw this picture we laughed until we almost cried… Good times!

Now for the Material List!!

I loved seeing what you all voted for in the polls for this years Crochet With Me… Winter 2016 Crochet-A-Long!!  The winning yarn was Red Heart With Love… It is a great worsted weight yarn that is soft, washable and easy to work with!!  Best of all it is on sale now at JoAnn if you like to shop at that fabulous craft store!!


Joann.com

This afghan will be approximately 70″Long x 65″ Wide.

Your will need approximately 3600 yards total of Red Heart With Love Yarn. This Afghan can be made in a monotone style or using 2-3 colors. Instructions will be for both.  You can use any worsted weight yarn you desire, but the end result may turn out slightly different depending on the yarn.  It is best to use a main color and one or two accent colors….

With Love Yarn

I will be using Red Heart With Love ~ 3 Skeins of Boysenberry, 3 Skeins of Peacock and 5 Skeins of Eggshell.  Since this project is being made as we do this Crochet-A-Long, I am only able to estimate the amount of each I will be using.
