off the hook...aran afghan

So much easier taking a blanket photo with a willing model. *J* has been itching to get underneath this one since I started it. He liked the red wool of the last one but says this one is thicker, warmer and slightly bigger.

I still have several balls of aran left over but decided to do a discrete border in the end. I tend to introduce too many stitches when I do borders and they end up puckering the blanket. Two rounds of dc and I feel I have just about got away without puckering the edges so I thought I'd quit whilst ahead!

The decorative stitches have given it a nice substantial thick feel. It is incredibly warm, and the size is more generous this time, so all in all it is good timing for the chilly winter evenings.


  1. It looks a real cosy blanket. Perfect for snuggling under in the winter.

    1. Yes I think we might be fighting over this one. I had better start the next one! J x

  2. brrrr just in time, there's a storm brewing... keep cosy x
