Braxxi, your afghan is very pretty.

 

I finished the picture on the dog afghan I'm making last night. Ihave to finish the background color and I'm going to add some more rounds in the background color to make it bigger.

I like that! Just goes to show that a pretty project doesn't need to be complicated.

and now we can add text after the photo

 

This is not an actual baby blanket pattern, But I loved the flower on the bag on the front of the latest Crochet Today.

So found a less 3D square to go with it and viola!

 

Oh and I did an lighter color in the center, Dafodils are no longer all yellow either ,I've seen them with orange centers

I finished the first afghan of 2013 Thursday! I actually started it on November 12, 2012 - so I hope it counts - BUT it's done & My dad was happy with it. It wasn't as big as I had hoped, and I had to do the waves going side to side - instead of up & down or I'd have never had enough yarn to finish or it would have never gotten done!!

Here's a sneak peak of the RR I am doing for my brother & SIL's baby due on February 8th. I started this last Sunday - and am about 75% of the way done - 

 

It's done in RHSS Camo (Mirage) - 5 rows of that - then a row of RHSS Spring Green in between!!

Thank you for continuing the CAL, Braxxi!  I'm still working on the afghan for my boyfriend's nephew.  He has been born now.  So much for getting that to his sister before he was born.  LOL  Oh well, moving and gallbladder surgery put a damper on my crochet time.  It's almost done thank goodness.

I'm still working on my grandsons afghan. That would be the one I intended to give him for his birthday back on Dec 27th. I guess there is always next year!

I have several afghans that need finishing. I took several years off from crochet because I went back to school and it's all been sitting here pointing guilty accusatory fingers of neglect my way. Good way to get busy and get these finished. I have 3 for sure that I want to finish and multiples that might get frogged and re-worked... what a chaotic crocheter I am!

Braxxi, that looks great! And you work so fast! Didn't you say you just started it at the beginning of this CAL?? :2eek

 

LegalWoman, I love the colors you have going there! I've always loved rainbows... always meant to do a rainbow afghan (or something) for myself, but haven't gotten there yet.

 

I'm going to jump into this CAL too. Probably no rainbow yet ;) But I have one baby blanket to make this year, one afghan I finished last year that needs a border (that has four layers if I do the border I planned) and I think three others that I've started over recent years and just haven't finished. Oh, and then there's the Cathedral Window as well, but I haven't started that yet. Still, that's five afghans. I don't think I will finish five afghans. :) But I'll try to make progress at least!

I haven't finished an afghan yet, but wanted to show you some progress. I am making the granny stripe afghan from Lucy at Attic 24. This is the first color section, 17 colors, two rows of each color.

This looks great! I love it! Is there a pattern somewhere?

I finished another baby blanket this morning. I'm posting two pics because the first shows the color better and the second shows the stitches better.

That is a really cool afghan, Braxxi!  I don't think I've ever seen that pattern before.  Well done!

Going to work on finishing an afghan I started for my son about... oh... 2 years ago. Poor kid. Life with an ADD mom is not always the greatest...

That is a very pretty baby afghan.

I'm still stitiching away on the afghans for my daughter and niece.
