Looking good craftybits!    Smiley

One question, when do you decide to change colors?  I changed mine after three rows.

thanks

actually my initial plan was to not to change color until i finish the whole skein of one color. blue one gave me 11 rows out of 1 skein (and i doubled it mind you) while brown gave me bareley 11 rows with 2 skein.. so i will go with the first plan with blue but for the brown parts i want it to be bigger so i will add 11 more rows...

well, after months of procrastination, i finished it:



That's my son on it, cause he has to investigate everything.



Stealing it!  Because he likes everything i make, even if it is pink.  Real men like pink, anyway.

Anyway, it went to my mom, cuz she paid for the materials. It's the perfect size for her, around 5 feet tall and maybe 2.5 wide... I didn't really measure, but it covers her head to toe. (she's tiny)

I had fun making it, a good pattern for tv watching.  My dad wants one now too, so i guess i'll have to see whats in the stash.

PhoenixDawn, I like the pattern of color combination.  It makes the FO look more delicate (and appropriate for Mom!)

How funny is it that your son is stealing off with it!   Cheesy

PhoenixDawn, I'm so glad you followed through and finished it!! It looks great!! It looks like a rose garden with a lot of different greens in there too. Really awesome afghan  Grin

I'm joining this CAL with a very 70's Afghan! Cheesy
I began fridaynight, while watching Smoking Aces and I've been working on it every night for about two hours.





You can see the colors a little better in this picture. The white is really an off-white and looks better IRL. (Maybe I should've picked yellow instead of white?  Huh)
It's so addicting!
