Here is the "Awesome" afghan I crocheted for AsphaltQueen in the Be Awesome swap.  You can find the free pattern on the Lion Brand site, and for those on Ravelry, you can find its page HERE.  It truly is a fun pattern, and I adore the colors (Vanna yarns all seem to go together so well).





and so not to overwhelm with pics, here are clickable smaller ones for those who want to peek at more

      

Thanks for peeking! Grin

For those wondering, yes, it is just as gorgeous in person. Grin

Thanks again, pinkleo, I've got this on my lap right now!

I love this!!! The colors are fabulous together.  I am slowly teaching myself to crochet and would love to someday be able to create something as gorgeous as this Smiley

So cool - almost has a vintage-y feel to it with the colors you choose.  And I agree, I love working with Vanna yarns because the colors look great together.  I'm working on a baby afghan now with magenta, cobalt blue, and a yellow green and it's turning out great.  Not as colorful as your blanket, though -nice job!

I agree! What great colours. I wish I could find colours which go together so well, but I'm sure mine would clash. I'm good at clashing.  Cheesy
