The Attic Triplets and Leftover Yarn Goodies
While searching for warm clothes in the attic I came across these unfinished afghans from the 1990's. Put them together, added fringe and now may I present..............Pattern: Aran Afghan, from Woman's Day Creative Series, Christmas 1993
Yarn: Super Saver Color: Aran
Needles: Size 9
Needed just the fringe on one side.
Pattern: Lattice Work from Leisure Arts leaflet 2315
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Color: Country Pink
Needles: Size 8
This was started in the fall of 1994. Needed sewing and fringe.

I have soaked these 3 in Eucalan. The Red Heart yarn is very soft now. This Red Heart had 8 ounces, now only has 7.

Such wonderful attic finds! I love the afghans and use one all the time, however, I never seem to have the stick-to-it-iveness to finish one. Beautiful!
