Back in October my best friend told me that he and girlfriend were going to get married.  When we were in college I made him an afghan and they both love it so when I explained that they weren't receiving a store bought gift from me they said that they wanted another afghan.  And his fiancee said that she wanted sunset colors.  So, this is what I came up with after putzing around for 3 months looking through books and ravelry patterns.  Here's hoping they like it.

Pretty shot draped over the swinging bench at the local park.


The laid flat shot so you can see all the blocks.

I'm jealous of your awesome park's benches but I'm mostly jealous of that afghan. It's beautiful!

Thanks for the kind words everyone!  Cheesy

Ducky2010 - This isn't the exact pattern that I used but its the same set of stitches.  http://www.craftleftovers.com/projects/mosaic-crochet-scarf/ 

I'm currently working on another project with the same basic pattern.  Its a scarf with a black outline and then the middle rows are all different colors.  It looks like stained glass to me.  Smiley
