Friends of ours came to the USA for a three year contract for work. Their three years were finished before we knew it and they were on their way back to Sweden. I wanted to make then something special to remember us by and their time here. So I decided to crochet them an afghan. I chose colors to match their living room which is painted in the Gustavian Style. I think I did alright because my friend was so happy when I gave them the blanket. I was on a serious time budget because I decided to crochet the afghan at the eleventh hour.
