Is that what you are asking ?


Winter is drawing Near .
Warm Blankets are needed .
I am making a Navajo Afghan to keep me warm this winter .
I need some friends to join me in this adventure out on the Lone Prairie .
Your horse could use a warm saddle blanket while out riding the range .

(On this same web page there is a Navajo Jacket made in the same design )


~No Bad Guys Allowed ~
You cannot have your picture on the Pony Express Wall as a Bandito.
You cannot be a cattle rustler or have robbed a wagon train .

And one more thing -
You must use either a famous Cowboy or Indian name to play .


Thank you ,

Okay, give me about 4 days and I'm in. Think I have pretty much those colors in that Vanna yarn that likes to jump in my buggy :yes

Julie~Another great idea for a CAL! I made 3 of these in the 80's and I think I have one of them somewhere. :think My pattern was typed by a neighbor of my mom's.

I won't join in on this one, but will have fun seeing what colors everyone comes up with. :hook
