I bought way too much of this Classic Elite (Pebbles) cottony white yarn, and I knew that if I didn’t do something soon, it would join countless other skeins (referred to as my “stash”) that wait patiently for me in a huge plastic footlocker in the basement.
I picked up a copy of Best of Terry Kimbrough Baby Afghans and chose the pattern called Heirloom Lace. Working on it here-and-there, it took me about two weeks to complete. Not bad at all. The center panel moves along quickly, but the pretty outer edging takes a bit of concentration.
The finished size is approx. 34″ x 42″, and it drapes beautifully:
I think I’ll put this one away with my Irish Knit Baby Blanket as one of those keepsake treasures.
Now to figure out what to do with the 10 skeins that I still have left. (I’m open to suggestions.)
