A few months ago I created a Mrs. Weasley inspired Burrow Afghan for sheepBlue in the I Want to Live in the Burrow Swap.  That project helped me use up a great deal of my stash of Homespun yarn, but I still had so many skeins left over.  So I decided to use up some more of them by creating a new afghan for a friend who is battling cancer.



The pattern is the Kew Gardens Afghan from Lion Brand yarn.  Just like in the previous afghan, I created this one by holding 2 strands of yarn together, changing out one strand of color at a time in order to blend the colors from black, through grey, purple, blue, teal, and aqua.



All told it took about of 20 skeins of yarn, and it weighs a TON!  Hopefully it will live at the foot of our new bed, whenever we manage to get it.  Cheesy





And finally, one more shot with my pup, looking completely unimpressed.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

The puggle gives great snuggles!  And the afghan is so friggen thick, that I'm not sure it will ever be cold enough to need it here in the south.  It has to weigh over 10 lbs easily.  :-/

I love your technique and this afghan will be so warm to snuggle under on those cold evenings. Lovely piece!
