A Gift of Love: Chevron Afghan




Since my mother-in-law is pretty much the homemaking woman of the year, 
she decided to start a new tradition of making an afghan for each newly married couple in the family. 
Even though we were married years ago, she offered to still make Brett and I an afghan (since I LOVE them).
She just finished up our chevron afghan, and I have to say...
I AM OBSESSED.
Everything about it screams me.
Simple navy and white colors.
Funky chevron pattern.
Warm and cozy.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

I can't express how grateful I am for Michelle's sweet gift. 
I know that it was made with love and is something we will always cherish.
Isn't it adorable? Seriously- she is superwoman.

I thought I would post the instructions for the afghan, since it is so dang adorable.
