I love this afghan I just finished for my dear friend from high school(ca 1970s). I'm almost sad to have it finished because the last half of the afghan was really cozy crocheting because it was nice and warm on my lap! Opi, my little chi "son" liked it too. Never fear, I have washed it and Laurie's "baby" shouldn't pick up the scent of another fur baby. Anyway, back to the afghan talk, I made this out of double strands of ww yarn from Caron and Vanna White. Originally, my df sent me the Vanna White yarn to make a sweater for her little fur baby. I don't know what was going on but I just couldn't get one to turn out. GRRRRRR! If you're a free member at Bernat website you can see it here. Anyway, I decided to add the Caron yarn from my stash and make her this afghan. I figured it would be something the two of them could cuddle in together and stay warm. I hope you like this Laurie. It's going in the mail to you on Monday-Tuesday timeframe.
