I'm so excited I can finally post this!



This is an afghan I made for the recent make a friend swap and sent off from NY State USA to Victoria Australia to my new friend there! She finally received it and snuggled up with it so now I get to share!



a close up of color and texture. It was done on size 10 needles using Bernats Twist in teal twist (which really looks more like turquoise and brown then any kind of teal)

The pattern is available free here  http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2809

I ran into the display at the store and that yarn fell in my cart, the free rip off was on the side and I knew it was just meant to be!

That is absolutely gorgeous!
It looks really teal-ish from a distance, I clicked the thumbnail because of the colour.

Oh, and I used that one before "no no, I only went shopping for some milk, this wool just fell into my basketWink
