I like those soft muted colors, are you doing double strand or is that just the yarn?

Thanks! :)They are double strand one strand of white with one strand of the colours from my scrap basket it makes them quicker to crochet up and lets me finish in white to get a blanket done faster!:D It also means I buy and use a lot of white yarn!:lol

Well my only set goal for this month is to finish my afghan... I only have about 6 more rows... but my cat got into my yarn and broke the yarn and did who knows how much damage. So I have to get into it and see if I have a lot of fixing to do. After that... hmm don't know yet.

Yes Susan you are right I need to make a bigger list didn't think I would go through it so fast but with only having one class this semester and then I have the rest of the summer to make more of a list until fall classes start.
