It's definitely growing on me. I think it's looks really nice in the photo.

So here's my finished kind-of-Danica.
Blocking in my mom's basement (she doesn't have nosy cats to help with blocking). This first photo is really close to the real colors.

the back

how thick it is when it's rolled up

This took me way too long to finish because I got nervous that it wasn't going to turn out right. It's for my husband's guitar teacher, who is sweet and wonderful but is also internationally known/famous (he has a wikipedia page, I mean, seriously, how could I NOT be nervous???). His favorite colors are blue and green, so I tried to go with that but not be too crayola-y. I'm still not really happy with how the decrease stitches look, and how that little chunk of green sticks out on the right, but I tell myself he won't really notice. Overall though, I am really happy with how this turned out. I'm going to tell him I expect to see it on an album cover soon. For now though, it will be hanging out and waiting until it's not 90 degrees. (We live in Missouri so he will get use out of it if this stupid heat ever breaks.)
Needles: size 9s
Yarn: RYC Cashsoft Aran in Shades 006 and 008 (two balls of each)
Vital Stats: 6 feet long by 6.25 inches wide

This might be a really dumb question but I've gotten to this point and I think I'm supposed to do another left side triangle ? at this point in the patten it says go to section two again but it doesn't seem to make sense ? heres what i have

what should I do now?

Yes, do the left side triangle, then you'll start back with section 2.
