Hate to admit this...it definitely gives away my age....
But...30 years ago...I purchased some wonderful acrylic cream yarn at K-Mart...knit up 4 afghans...the Fisherman type...with cables and bobbles, etc...and to this day...those afghans are still alive and holdin' their own!
:pout: Only problem is: I don't have one of the afghans at MY HOUSE anymore. :pout: As our children grew up and married and left home...they all took one...and those blankets are now on the back of the sofas in their TV rooms.
That is a fond memory of my kids...in front of the Tube...under one afghan blankie each!
I had to go out and get another one for myself! Didn't knit it...bought it at a closeout sale at my LYS...composed of 12-12" big squares made with different colors of Manos del Uruguay Wool! Love it!
Paid through the nose! :verysad:
