I have been waiting for my local store to get in their shipment of yarn. After finishing the first panel of this afghan over a month ago (maybe more) it feels like it is taking forEVER!  I am done waiting and will move on to something else for the moment.  Pattern is by Cindy Joe who can be found on her Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/cindy.joe.773

Marilyn has been crocheted using a 5mm hook and Red Heart Comfort yarns.  Thanks for viewing!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Another winner! Are you saying it is incomplete? Are there going to be 3 more Marilyns in different colorways?

I'm curious about this too... I can't tell the size but it looks small for a throw based on the stitches. It's certainly impressive enough as is but I know your projects, they are sometimes unbelievable in their complexity of design!

 Thanks for the comments everyone.  TheMistressT & xxmazenxx; this is indeed one of four! The square that is showing is 115 stitches by 125 stitches and is not small by any means. 4' 2" wide X 4' 5" long.
