First off.. I have no idea what I was thinking...
Backstory: My grandma gave me allllll this yarn that her friend gave her 10+ years ago... Which 1) SCORE! and 2) what am i going to do with all this? (Just to get an idea of how much.. Imagine two of those large black bags that people use for outdoors FILLED with yarn)
Anyway.. I decided I was going to make my mummy a pretty afghan for her birthday, which btw was yesterday.. YAY MUMMY!
Again.. I have no idea what i was thinking..
I am using a pattern my grandma has been using every since I was very little, probably before that? I'm 20 now.. so who knows.. ?
The jist of the pattern is RIPPLES.. and SINGLE CROCHET...
ICK! It's a lot of crocheting...
BUT it is looking amazing and it will totally be worth it when i give it to my mummy.. (I bought her something else for her birthday since i'm not finished with it yet)
So i've been working for about two weeks on it.. Off and on.. So without further ado..
This is what i have completed so far... My mummy likes browns.. I personally am calling this the "Coffee Afghan" because I don't know what brand of yarn this is or what the colours are called.. So I'm calling the lightest colour "Latte", the next one "Caramel Mochiato", and the last one "Espresso".
and here's a close-up of the amazing effect of the single crotchet and the ripples that i'm absolutely in love with!
Now.. I'm not finished, but I would like to hear anyones thoughts on it..
