So I had a great visit with the neighbor while visiting my Dad here in Colorado. She is so good to him by always sending over treats and cooked meals.
I know she is a crafter but this is the first time we have gotten to sit and work on something.
She has a blanket her grandmother made all the kids for their weddings. She is wanting to make one for her daughter as well. Of course, it is a vintage pattern.
So we got started with her reading the stitches she saw in the finished piece, and me trying to reproduce it.
Turns out we did a really good job! She found the closet pattern to it online and is now making some as well!
The closet pattern we could find is a Vintage Rose Afghan by McCalls circa 1978 or so.
I plan to do one of these as well, when my wip pile and Christmas projects are done!

I love this! I particularly love how this woman cares for your father. Bonding over needlework makes it even more wonderful.
Lovely afghan! Great job reproducing it 🙂
