This Primrose Path afghan was made using a pattern from Home Sweet Home Afghans, a book which my mother gave me when I was sixteen. At the time, I never thought I’d want to make this one, but after looking at the book again, this pattern really spoke to me. I used Lion Brand Homespun (colors cream, baroque, and forest), and I got the yarn on an awesome sale through Joann Fabrics. I made this over Christmas break; about half of it was done at work, and the rest was done on a family trip to Canada. I love how soft it is, but I wonder how long it will take the kitten to destroy it.
