Janet's Plan for her Sisters' Afghan
After completing Jane's sisters' afghan, we moved onto Janets'.
It did not go as smoothly as the granny squares I chose for mine.
She loves to choose difficult, challenging unique things, so therefore she
came up with an idea to make circular pieces to create her special afghan.
The patterns she came up with from books were not exactly what she
wanted, so she created her own. Below are the steps required to create
the circular pieces.
When Janet sent the beautiful yarn, I rolled it into manageable skeins and began. It was a very frustrating process, as the yarn is beautiful and soft, but snags and is very uneven in size.
As I began to make my portion of the pieces, the circular results I created were much smaller than the ones she had sent me as a pattern for comparison.
When she came for a visit, she realized the samples she sent me were actually too large, and what I was creating were correct. Frustration was running rampant in my creation of these pieces, so I have quit for quite a while.
