Texture---hrrrmmm! I looked around the house for something, and stumbled upon a lap afghan on the sofa. I bought it from a neighbor friend of my parents' years ago when Steve and I got married, and it also came with a pillow. Yes, I washed both of them well, and we still use them to this day----23+ years later! Steven usually wraps himself up in the afghan when he's watching tv on the sofa. Not incredibly soft, but it is comfortable! Man, I miss the boy! He did call me this morning!
