So, I'm working on another one. I went and picked up 9 balls of this great bulky-weight, super-soft acrylic stuff and hoped it would be enough.
Working with 4 colours, I have almost nearly a full ball of one colour (which is complete now), nearly 2 balls of another colour (only 2 rounds left of this colour), and have to buy another ball each of the remaining colours. I have one point, both sides, plus half a side of the one colour left to complete, as well as a full three rounds of the final colour.
I completely forgot that when doing a succession of colours, you will need more of the colours you use on later rounds...duh!

Oh, well, it's turning out quite nicely, and is nearly big enough for my 6'4" boyfriend to use comfortably as an afghan when watching TV Cheesy:D:D

After sooo long I finally got back online and on-track ... and I have pics of my two starghans!! I also made one as a gift but forgot to take a pic before I gave it away (boo)  Roll Eyes

The pics came out a little weird cuz I didn't have anyone to help me take them, so it looks like they're wonky, but I swear they're nice and even!  Cheesy

My Starghan, made with Caron Simply Soft (40 rows). You can see the joins  Sad:


Starghan for my baby (due June 22nd!!), made with TLC Amore (20 rows) ... yes, this is a blatant ripoff of superlisa's baby starghan, but I loved it so much and the colors went perfectly with the nursery so I had to do it, sorry!  Embarrassed I used the join-at-a-point trick for invisible joins this time, yay!  Grin


Of course my handsome kitty HAD to be in the pic!!  Wink

I'm really loving this pattern ... I already know it by heart, and yet I manage to learn something new every time I make another starghan. Now I've got my eye on the alternative, "no holes" pattern ... as soon as I find someone who wants a starghan I'm trying that one out!

Yay for starghans!!  Cheesy

They are both very nice, dofnup!

I've bought loads of yarn lately and definately plan on making more of these as gifts because all my friends just love these!

I've been working on both the holes and no holes version and I think I like the no holes one better.  I'll post pics when I find my camera. 

I'm awesome. Smiley

I have vintage yarn that I would like to give to someone! Please send a message if you'd like to obtain it.  I have lots!

Been working on hats like crazy, so I had put the blanket aside. Been working on it on and off for the past two days. Still have a LOT to go to get it where I want (yeah, I know, it's for a 5 year old, but I want it to fit on her bed and to be something she can use for a while). My daughter loves it so far, and keeps "trying it out" and telling me how much bigger she wants it.

Sorry for the horrible picture. I tried to sneak in a picture before my daughter started going for the camera so I didn't get to smooth it down or make it look "pretty for the camera".

no holes:


both are unfinished and i hope both will be okay once they've been blocked. 

I'm awesome. Smiley

I have been watching this thread with great interest for a long time.  I have a friend who is having a baby girl in May.  Her nursery is in sage and rose.  I used Lion Cotton Ease in Lime, Berry and Almond.  It measures 40 inches across from the tip to the inner corner (don't know how else to describe it).  The colors are as close as I can get them, because my house is very dark.

I finally got a new cord for my camera so I can start uploading things now.   Wheeeee!! Smiley  This actually came about better than I had expected. The first picture is the finished blanket. The second includes another one I was making that sadly ended up in my WIP pile.   

I'm working on another right now.  I'm hoping to have it done by next weekend but I work nights and its hard to work on it during the week.   Grin

Why does "you have 0 unread personal messages" always make me just a little sad?
