Yes, it's another Alan Rickman afghan.  Grin

This is an afghan I've made from a portrait drawing of Alan done by artist Cynthia Petrovic.

I found the drawing on her "artwork lab" page at her website http://www.tangoland.com/
(She has a few others of Alan in different roles such as Mesmer and Slope for any of you die-hard Rickman fans out there.)

Cynthia is also the one responsible for the hilarious You Tube video "A Day With Alan Rickman" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xLMqqs-ZKc from a few years ago.  Grin

Anyway, the afghan is tunisian crocheted using a size J cabled afghan hook.
I used Red Heart yarn in black, white, and lavender. (I added the lavender triangle in the background to give it some color. I wanted it to look like a swanky boomerang but it looks more like the triangle on a "record" button of a tape player). LOL!

I also made an afghan, which I sent to her, of two of her RedTango cats.

These were from two Livejournal icons she has available on her free downloads page at the same website above.

I used the size J cabled hook again and Red Heart yarn too. The pink is called Pretty n Pink. It's really a hot pink!

She really liked the afghan!

Great again! Are you planning on making any Beatles-themed afghans any time soon? *hopeful Lol* Btw which sizes crochet hooks do you have and where did you buy them?

Snape, Snape, Se-ve-rus Snape . . .

Both of these are beautifully done. Cheesy I really need to learn how to do tunsinian stitches properly . . . and buy an afghan hook, that would be helpful too. >.<

"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect. But actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective point of view, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey . . . stuff."
