While I’m not ready for the summer to be over, I have to admit I’m enjoying the cool crisp nights in New England this week. The thought of having an afghan in progress draped across my lap is suddenly appealing. I just have to decide which one to knit or crochet.
This one? Meant to allude to the look of a patchwork of Calico fabrics, Calico Hill‘s pieces are knit onto each other, reducing the number of seams, while providing puzzle-like amusment.
This one? Basketweave is easy and quick and that sounds really good to me right now.
Or this one? I love the simple and supple crochet stitch in Meditate. I might change it to brown and grey.
They’re all from Comfort Knitting & Crochet: Afghans. When I finally make my choice, I’ll probably substitute Vintage. I’m a wool fan, but practical enough to know I’ll want to machine wash anything as big as a blanket.
Is it ‘afghan on your lap’ weather where you are?
