Yay, the afghan as ordered by The Teen for her new bedroom in Mumbai is done! It is looking great against an all white, minimalist background and I have to admit that the photo is a poor reflection of how scrumptious it actually is. The weather is still playing up but I decided to photograph it nonetheless the moment the sun appeared for a few minutes. I used 34 skeins of Vinnis Nikkim hand dyed 100% cotton [50 gram per ball] to create 70 squares and the edging. It is a high quality yarn, a dream to hook with and the cotton is most suitable to the climate in Mumbai which is hot and humid.
The Teen drew a quick pic of her idea of what her afghan should look like. I convinced her to trim it in off-white and she selected the full range of colours during a visit to the yarn store.
The afghan is edged in a design by the lovely Lucy from Attic24. She used it on a Granny stripe and even though it is a simple pattern to hook, the result is very pretty.
Have a great weekend! I am nearly finished with the small hexagon handbag too and am itching to start hooking something in a more complex pattern for a change. First however, it appears that I will be hooking a bag in the Crocodile stitch, then a few coasters and doilies and finally something more complex. Cheers!
