I am participating in this CAL on another site and thought I would bring it here too.  This is what I'm doing.  I have provided the link to the instructions.  I'm making this for my 80 y/o momma for XMAS.  I plan to make it to fit a Twin Size Bed.  You can go as big as you can stand.  I'm using Caron Simply Soft in Limelight, Grape and Black.

If you like join in!!

I'm in... as soon as my current wip (giant *square* granny afghan) is finished. It'll be for my soon-to-be-born niece... and I'll probably go the non-traditional route of some nice, vivid, rainbow colors. We'll have to see about the cash flow, though.

I hear that  Grin I have one planned for myself already... even bought the yarn for it LOL

I started it and once I was in about 5 rounds, I ripped it apart and started over because I wanted to change the amount of rows per color. One row each of alternating color (orange, black, orange) just didn't look right  Shocked

I'll get a pic going tomorrow once it's a little bigger  Wink
