Adding to an Original
I made this afghan for my daughter, Kim, quite a while ago when her bedroom walls were a dark blue. She's just completely redone the room in dusty rose walls with white trim and a white comforter so she asked me if it was possible to add some dusty rose to the afghan. Of course it is!
So far I've added a dusty rose yarn to some of the bare spots but I'm worried it isn't enough to show up. I do see a good opportunity to add more in the second photo and that should be enough.
When I got the yarn to the finished border, I wove it through and under, then brought it back underneath about 6 floats to anchor it (bottom photo). This is how we used to anchor the ends so I know it will hold up well in the wash.
What a lovely craft this is!
