Willing to personal swap for art of my doggies!

A good friend is pregnant with her first baby and I decided to make her a basket of goodies, with the first item being a new afghan.  It's been awhile since I have been in the mood to make an afghan; I have about 3 or 4 started, but either got bored with the pattern, felt uninspired, or lost parts of it and could not be bothered to find them again.

This one worked up fast, and I liked the pattern, and it was easily portable.  It was essentially a clustered granny, with a clustered and picot edge.  I changed the edge a bit to something I felt made more sense in the sequence.  I also started with a magic ring, I love the magic ring to start almost any "in the round" crochet - it looks so much neater, and is so much easier to control the consistency.  I liked working it a lot better than some of the ones I have done before with the dimensional animals, etc.  I also loved the yarns - though they were a bit harder to work with because of the twist.  The white is a fluffy white matte twisted with a satin thread.  The matte twist was varied in width, and tended to fluff up.  The aqua is pretty too, it actually is an aqua strand twisted with white.

This is very pretty, and I love the edging.  Is there any way you would post a pattern for it, or even a close up picture of it so I can attempt to copy you?  Pretty please?

That is absolutely beautiful!  Your friend is a very lucky girl!
My youngest latched on to, not the afghan that I made for her, but a ratty hand-me-down from some distant cousin.   Tongue

Very very pretty!  Love the colors and all the detail.  I too, have a pregnant pal...did you make this up or is there a pattern?  Thanks.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

The colours on this are absolutely beautiful together.  I'm not really one for crocheting (I prefer knitting), but this afghan is lovely -- pattern and colours!
