August 1st, 2013

It’s the first day of August, and you’ve probably already seen some “Back to School” advertisements reminding you that the summer is slowly winding down.  While we still want to enjoy the last month or two of this wonderful weather, it’s also a perfect time to think about those bigger projects you may want to start to have ready for the cooler weather – like afghans.

I’ve rounded up a few afghan patterns that are warm and cozy, and also serve as great home decor projects. Make your friends jealous when they come over and see your beautiful handiwork!

    I can’t wait to try some of these! I was just thinking of knitting up an afghan for my great-grandmother, too. The Autumn Lace is my favorite.

    The Americana one is awesome! I really hate the sewing part though. I still have one from several years ago that is over half finished but due to all the weaving and sewing I got bored with it. I don’t start new projects because I have so many unfinished old ones. I need an intervention!
