i have just gotten this and am going to start sometime this week. I love your color combos. You should come show it off at ravelry.com! My username is im1hansonpunk.

Got the pattern now, but so far I've only got 2 of the required 6 colors. I'll get the rest in 2 weeks, but in the meantime I'll get started on the triangles. So far I've done 7. Four squares are done and I've started doing an octagon which of course I cannot complete. It's easier than I thought!

I'd also love to see what this looks like in fabric. I'll just stick to crochet, that's probably better for me  Wink.

@Granite_Turtle: Have you made more progress yet? I'd love to see!

I am so easily distracted!  But I have finished another octagon Smiley

I really like the colours in this one.  I do find these blocks easy, I just don't like the way the colour joins look.

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

One octagon closer to finishing the afghan  Grin! I've noticed that in some of my squares the change of color looks all right, but in others it looks a bit off. Is that what you mean?

What I've done so far:

This is all I can do with the 2 colors I've got. Can't wait till the 15th, hopefully I'll get the other colors by then.

I've tried to take a closeup of the joins I am least pleased with:

I have followed the pattern EXACTLY.  But I feel like there is a gap in the lower right corner there and that the colours don't line up.

Kristel I love your colours!  What yarn are you using?  That blue is really pretty.

Yes, I see what you mean. Perhaps you could repair the hole. Hopefully you won't notice it much once the afghan is done.

I use Steinbach Wolle Sport, 20% wool, 80% acrylic. I love it; it is very easy to work with. Most of the colors I'll use are very close to or the same as the designer's - I hope  Wink. I've only seen samples of most.

I've done about 12 octagons so far. In most of them I made the same mistake: I put in 3 sc in the corners of row 13 where there should be one. The previous rows are done with three and so is the last so I just never noticed the difference in row 13. You read what you want to read - that's obvious. It makes the edges pucker a bit, but fortunately that doesn't show when you sew them together.

I don't like the way the triangles stick out and I really hope the edging will fix that  Cheesy.
