An afghan makes the pefect  gift for anyone of any age--a new baby or an elderly person both would love the gift of an afghan.  Or how about those newlyweds, a college-bound student, a soldier who is away from home.........this list could go on and on.

Making an afghan can be an excellent way to use up all that yarn you've collected. amd depending on the pattern you choose, it may be a great project to use up those small amounts of yarn from past projects.

I made an afghan for each of my 5 children when they graduated high school! And all 7 grand babies received one when they were born. The do make wonderful gifts!

You are so right Katrina! I still have the classic "granny square" afghans that my grandmother made and have several around the house that I made years ago--think it's time to make some new ones now.
