Several months ago, I saw this dark blue, super-plushy yarn in JoAnn’s and I knew I had to make an afghan out of it. After a month and a half of crocheting, the Water Tribe afghan is draped over my (queen-size) bed.
I had to crack open 9 skeins of yarn; it could’ve been 8, but there was a shortage of the dark blue that I fell in love with, so I had to supplement it with some other colors that worked with the theme. Also, without sales or coupons, each skein is $10, so I had to be careful about not buying too much. That said, I’m pretty pleased with how it came out.
I have vague plans for making an afghan of another element next winter, though I’ll need to find appropriate patterns for them. Something new and (honestly) more challenging.
