This afghan in cool colours is part of Universal
Yarn's afghan kit collection. The kit includes yarns
and instructions and costs $99. Stix & Stones can
also create kits specific to what you're looking for
in cotton, silk, mohair or any other yarn. Start
envisioning your perfect throw!
This throw is knit as a square and comes
in a range of beautiful hand-died variegated
wool yarns. You need two skeins at $16 each,
thick needles and one very bad movie night to
complete it. The result: a gorgeous, highly
personalized afghan. Tempting!
This amazingly colourful afghan is
made by Dianne Giroux and is for
sale at Stix & Stones. If you prefer
a calmer colour scheme, the throw
below by the same knitter could be
an option. $295 each.
This baby blanket is also knit as a square and should
be a piece of cake (says the time optimist). It is made
out of wool yarn and requires four skeins at $9 each.
Whether it's a throw or a quilt, who doesn't want
to see our little ones warmly wrapped up and
happy? In a future blog, I'll show inspiring quilt photos
and beautiful quilts available in our local stores.
