This is the next afghan for the eldest of a friends three girls. The granny ripple was for the youngest and the middle daughter is getting a granny swirl.

She chose the colors from my stash and after I used up the first 3 skeins I realized one color was discontinued. DOH!
Thankfully a kind soul sent me one after I posted on another crochet forum.
This is a modification of the Red Heart pattern called Daydreamer Diagonal Blanket #LW2580



Stats: 6888 double crochets, 6888 single crochets, 2296 slip stitches, and 3 colors.

Beautiful.  Looking forward to seeing the last one.  I am so impressed at the way you just get on and do them.  I have at least one half finished afghan languishing from laziness or else it just gets pushed out by life and other things.

I love it. For some reason, it is very calming. Perfect for a blanket.
