Are you talking about the one that I posted pics of earlier in this thread? If so, thanks!  Cheesy My b/f loves it (even if it's started to come unraveled more than a few times  Shocked Cheesy ). I've had to go down there (he lives one state south of me...) and repair it more than a few times but he still loves that darn thing  Grin

yuppp.. the black and orange one.. Smiley

hi! instead of going with lots of colors, i decided to go with the    turquoise and brown i was anticipating to do something with.



i started with the brown because i want it to dominate. i will keep going until i finish with turquoise and then i will add brown and so on. i have 2    turquoise and 2   brown skeins. i doubled the yarn to make it thicker so it goes faster. i really love the pattern it is very easy and grows quick.

Great color choices! Cheesy I love blue and brown together. I love your blanket. Great stitch definition.

What pattern are you using?

My WIP for this CAL.  I chose Caron Simply Soft in Chocolate and Light Country Blue.  Because of the shine of the yarn, the Light Country Blue looks more like a slate-grey. 

Thanks for the pattern, it works up so easily!

Okay, a crocheted arghan has so far been on my list of "never gonna do that" but this one I could probably handle in doses, and eventually have something of a respectable size - thanks for the idea!

Fun4Bambi, 

I thought an afghan would take to long for me too.  This pattern is wonderfully repetitive and I found it very soothing.  Mine lives in a grocery sack and do a couple of rows when I am sitting & watching tv. 

Good luck!
