#103 Afghan

The last 2 days I have been working on a baby afghan for a friends grandson.  I finished it last night and am quite happy with how it turned out.  It is made with the Brick Stitch pattern and Caron's Simply soft yarn (Bone, White & Blueberry)  I love these colors together and I think I will make another baby afghan using them, but a different pattern.  I also think the Blueberry and White would be really pretty with yellow, so I may give that a try also.  This is where I find myself in a dilema...I love choosing new color combinations and don't have enough time to make them all!

June Giveaway afghan completed

My 100th afghan is complete! Shanna Cunning was the winner of this afghan and she chose to have a solid cream color using the brick stitch pattern. I used Caron's Simply Soft Vanilla yarn and love how it turned out.

Camo Afthan

A while ago, I decided I wanted to make up a new afghan pattern.  My grandma had given me one she made diagonally.  I thought it would be interesting to try since I had never made one this way before.  I asked her for the pattern, but she had made it up as she went and didn't have one.  Hers was just Double Crochet and I wanted to try something a little different.  This is what I came up with.

This green afghan will be given to my nephew.  I have yarn to make a pink one and a blue one and I think i will sell them.  The pattern is available to purchase through paypal on the Right side of this page and also in my etsy shop.

June 2011 Service Projects

 I'm trying to get rid of all the extra yarn I have hanging around the house, so I was able to complete a few blankets for  a Hospital in June.
