During the times I am sitting around the house doing nothing I thought I should be a little more productive. So I went to the Paton's yarn web site (www.patonsyarns.com) and looked up some patterns. The patterns are free to members and membership is free too.
I wanted to do something simple and chose this "Popcorn And Lace Afghan". I ended up using about twice the amount of yarn that's called for in the pattern, but then again I never check the tension and I just make it until it's as long as I want it to be.
You can see I made it big enough to cover the length of the sofa. Notice the lump on the top. That's Ollie. I wanted a picture of the afghan and spread it out over top of her. It didn't bother her at all.Here you can see a little more of the detail.
Now that that's done I guess I'll have to find another pattern to do.
