Chilly nights in Florida!

Before we moved to Florida I knew we would experience some chilly evenings while watching TV so I knit myself an afghan. I used two strands of yarn throughout and my goal was to use yarns I already had. I only had to buy a few skeins to make the colors work. It is light, soft and warm. It looks like it was made for this room - because it was!

When my husband saw mine he wanted one too but he didn't want one like mine as he thought it was too feminine. I still had a lot of yarn left so I just bought some black yarn and used the black as one of the 2 strands through out the afghan. I had to make his larger so it took a lot longer.

When they are not being used they are displayed in an old copper boiler I found in my basement in Wisconsin. I had intended to have it polished but I haven't found anyone to do it. I tried it myself and gave up quickly.

I have since knit several others for friends and family. I don't have photos of any of them.

His afghan is tonight's puzzle.
