My Elegant Tapestry Afghan





Introduction: My Elegant Tapestry Afghan

I found the pattern for this afghan in 1985 in a Good Housekeeping Magazine. I just loved it and decided that I would save it until I retired and make it for a heirloom for my daughter.
I decided to buy the yarn for it. I needed 24 different colors, so as you might of figured out by now, it took me forever to get all my colors going to many,many different stores.
Finally last year, I had all the colors and decided this was as good of a time to get started on it.
What a challenge it was. It took me longer to untangle all the 24 to 30 little balls of all different colors, sometimes having 2 balls of the same color in one row, then it actually took me to knit the row.
Was very happy when I got it done and it was a real challenge, but I think it was well worth the time and effort I put in it, but I will never make another one.
Hope you all appreciate looking at my masterpiece.
