Red Aran Afghan

I posted photos of this Red Aran Afghan on another thread, however, I am showing it here as well. I truly appreciate seeing all of your knitted works of art...and have gained INSPIRATION to try some patterns and knitting techniques that I have been procrastinating! 37 years at the needles...still haven't done a sock or entrelac. Der.

My afghan is knit using Rowan's POLAR bulky yarn. It took 25 skeins with the ruffle, which was my idea, not the pattern. The afghan pattern itself is located in the a new book called CABLES UNTANGLED. It is shown in the usual creamy white, using the usual worsted weight.

I wanted a truly soft, cozy, big afghan for my catnaps! So, the Rowan POLAR bulky yarn really accomplished my goal. Finished it on the date shown in the photos. It took me about 4 weeks. I was obsessed with it. The weather was cold, and the afghan kept me warm and cozy all the while.

The Petite Bell Ruffle pattern is found in NICKY EPSTEIN'S "Knitting On the Edge". CLICK HEREto buy the book ON SALE at! (Jan 29th 2008)

I had 31 skeins of this yarn in my Stash...begging to get out of yarn prison! Six remain. Not bad!

So, here it is!

Oh that is beautiful, I love anything with cables. I also like your collection of "Thomas Kinkades" or style on the wall, interesting way of laying them out.

You are certainly more patient then I am..

Now on to some
