Late Saturday evening, the last ends were woven on the berry version of the reversible Twegen afghan. In the photo, you can see the ribbed side above the blanket fold line and the fluted side below it.
Like Twegen Harvest and Twegen Coffee, this afghan incorporates my favorite attributes: Fast and easy. Strip construction. Reversible. Solely from stash yarn.
It's designed to function as a lap robe, because that's the size that gets near-constant use in this household. The yarn is a blend of wool and cotton, which means it's light but warm, a great weight year-round weight particularly well-suited to the current chilly spring mornings and evenings.
As you know, most of my afghans are designed to use stash yarn, but this one has been particularly valuable in that department. Not only is this two-toned slip stitch reversible, it allowed me to use eight different one-skein yarns (four of which I referred to as "the uglies") and blend them into a cohesive whole.
The result? A pile of yarn has been transformed into something both decorative and useful, which is a satisfying feeling.

This was such a fast and enjoyable knit, you may well see another in the future. Right now, I'm working on a new afghan concept, which means there's lots of swatching, measuring, calculating and frogging going on in the background.
There's no doubt about it, I'm truly addicted.
