This is an on going project of mine.....I am crocheting an afghan. It is turning out to be more like a bedspread, which means a lot bigger. I don't use a pattern. I never learned how to read the patterns. I learned from my mother and grandmother, visually. It took both of them because my mom was left handed, and I am right handed, so everything she did, I had to do backwards......thank goodness my grandma was a righty!!

I only work on this in the cooler months, because it is so toasty,and cozy while working on it!!

    It looks very warm and toasty. What a great entry. I learned to crochet and knit from my grandmother that lived in Maine. She made us socks, gloves, blankets, and all sorts of goodies. I don't do either anymore though. I can't sit still long enough.

    So nice, Betty! It's gonna beautiful. My mother-in-law used to sit in the waiting rooms at airports and train stations waiting for her husband. He always joked that, by the time he arrived, the room was full of afghan!
