I can’t believe how fast this blanket has come together! I started seaming it last month (you can see a photo of it on Instagram here) and I can’t wait to move onto this month’s design – the Tiny Jack-O-Lantern Cup Afghan Square.
Sticking with my Halloween love an theme this month, I wanted to make this C2C square a Jack-O-Lantern coffee cup. It shouldn’t be super surprising because last year’s tapestry square CAL featured a very same design – a jack-o-lantern cup. I just can’t help repeating images because I love how they turned out all year long last year.
I love making Halloween designs, especially because this year as been so weird and this Halloween will be anything but normal. I feel for the kids who only have maybe 10 Halloweens they will be able to dress up and go get candy. I remember I stopped trick or treating at 13, I was handing out candy and helping my siblings get ready to go out. Now I miss it. Ya know? Maybe that’s why I like to make so many designs, they fill me with joy.
Like I said last C2C square post, all the coffee afghan squares will all be the tiny ones until December. I hope you like these squares! I can’t wait for next month’s – I have it already designed and my testers are almost done. I can’t wait to share it 🙂
So I leave you friends – I hope you all are healthy and happy and like this new design. Please be kind to one and other, wear your masks, wash your hands, and be safe friends!
Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn for the purposes of making this design, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, I’ve used it many times and it’s always a great worsted acrylic yarn.
