Dragon Afghan made of Red Heart Comfort yarn; half double crochet using a 5mm hook.  My local yarn store was constantly running out of yarn this last few months and I was continuously running out of the right color yarn.  I had to improvise as I was working on a deadline. All in all this afghan turned out alright and the color changes seemed as though it was decided that way.  A gift for my cousin Maureena from her sister Wanieta.  This pattern was found here (http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/embroidery/hand-embroidery/dragon-head-3-cross-stitch-pattern-/81131) and modified for use in this afghan.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

That is really fantastic.  I can imagine the hours that went into it!  What do you keep your yarn wound on for the different colored sections?

Thanks for the likes everyone.  dulcet I used perm rods for hair to hold my yarn.  The work quite nicely and I love them.
