This My Little Pony Afghan is the first of three Afghan’s I’m making as gifts for family this year – possibly there’ll be a fourth if I have time. This one took around 2 weeks, an estimate of 65 hours, to make. I am only recently new to c2c skills, so this, my first project using it, fills me with satisfaction and just a dash of pride 🙂 However, as we know, pride oft goeth before… And my fall was in the date my beloved granddaughter Lauren was born. You see, she and my grandson, a year apart in age, have birthdays within a month of each other. As they’re only 2 and 3 respectively, I sometimes muddle the month belonging to each. When designing this item, I put so much effort into getting the day and month correct that I stuffed up the bit I confidently know 🙂 – the year. Ah, pride, mine enemy 🙂 Never mind, it only took a little creative thinking to come up with a patch to put over the error, attaching a fabric backing before finishing with that gorgeous trim around.
Anyway, here’s the first of 2015 Christmas series of gifts – if you’d like a graph of the pony, or of the alphabet, numbers… let me know. Happy to share.
