Here it goes, my first every documented crochet blog project.
Back in the day my grandma used to knit A LOT! She made dozens of beautiful afghans and sweaters for the whole family. In fact, on cold night I'll sleep with a few of them. As she got older she stopped knitting and gave me a bunch of her old stuff. So, I've been using a lot of her old yarn for my projects and I did the same thing for this one.
Two weeks ago I started a crochet throw loosly based on this pattern. I really love zigzag patterns and I had a lot of cream yarn from my grandma I wanted to use. I just needed a couple of accent colours, so I chose these in "Black" and "Jade Heather". (I always look for coupons when buying my yarn. Michael's always has coupons online and in their flyers!)
So far I'm really liking it. The pattern is nice and easy and the yarn is smooth and light to work with.
