So I've become a bit obsessed with making afghans. I think I like the fact that it's a project that doesn't take just a day and it's so satisfying after you finished. These are my two most recent let me know what you think.

This one was a stashbusting afghan that made a considerable dent in my yarn collection. It's all acrylic of various brands from other projects I've done throughout the years:



This one is made from Vanna's Choice yarn with this pattern: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0057AD.html?noImages=
I made it longer than the pattern calls for and it's HUGE I layed down on it and it's taller than me. I'm trying to figure out if I want to put a border on it and maybe add more rows but for now it's done until I can decide on both of those....Oh and the dark blue is actually a purple it didn't photograph very well:

I love the second one! I like it as is, but i'm sure if you add to it, it will look just as awesome.
