Jacob’s Ladder Afghan


I finally finished my Jacob’s Ladder Afghan I started last October.


I really love the details in it. This photo is pretty close to the true color of the yarn. I used I & J hooks with Red Heart Super Saver Multi yarn in Shaded Dusk. The afghan worked up fairly fast once I sat down and put my mind to doing it. I think that I started way too many projects at once :)  This afghan will be a gift. Hopefully it will be well loved.

I have already casted on another Plain Jane Afghan to match the pillow cover that I started crocheting a while back, and I still have my sweater in progress. I’m going to try to limit my self to 3 WIP’s at a time. Lets see how well that works.
