I had some time over the holidays since my gifts and hats I needed to make were done, so I got myself a big bag o yarn and started the tree of life afghan I have been coveting for so long. I always found the pattern a bit intimidating. I have been crocheting for about 8 years (crap I feel old just saying that) but mostly just smaller stuff like hats, mittens, scarves, etc. I have done some serious work on this blanket the past week, so after much profanity and a bit of ripping out, here is what I have done so far!

It's a bit wonky in spots, but I don't think it will be noticeable in the finished product. I'm also going to change the border from what is written on the pattern I think, it's too ruffly. Pattern is free from Lion Brand.

Good work so far! It's a pattern I much admire but have never got around to making.

It's coming along for sure, I wish I had more days off to spend working on it! Here's my latest progress:

I have admired that pattern for a long time but am afraid to try. Yours is coming along so beautifully. Can't wait to see your finished afghan

That is awesome. My best friend loves trees like that. I may have to make her one of these after all the doctor who stuff I plan to make for her.

That looks fantastic! I can't believe you can make trees with post-stitches! It's amazing
