Just another pillow.....

Some years ago I bought the book "Great American Aran Afghan" also
called GAAA, and with big enthusiasm

I started to knit the first blocks of the 24 different ones in this
beautiful afghan..

After 5 blocks I gave it up, it was too much
work, and the blocks were getting more and more difficult,
so I sold the book and put the project away.....

 The blocks just showed up again while
I was unpacking another box in the attic
I saw four of the blocks together, and with big brother's
old jeans as backing,

It is now our new pillow!

I am enjoying the dark autumn evenings in my corner,
 enjoying my favorite cup of tea and knitting socks for the
 toodlers while the rain is tromming on the windows...

Have a nice evening and thanks for stopping by!

Så smart å lage pute av lappene. Mine ligger også her et sted. Jeg mangler bare 4 lapper for å få ferdig teppet, men så har jeg gått tom for garn og produsenter lager ikke garnet mer... Også jeg koser meg med håndarbeid og te disse kalde sure dagene med regn og vind.
