Recommended Posts

Beautiful, Cindra!  I'm not colorblind, can see the blues, and I love them.  May I ask what pattern or stitch this is?  It's a very handsome afghan!

Thank you everyone!  It worked up really quickly.  

 

I purchased the pattern on Etsy--the Rainbow Afghan http://www.etsy.com/listing/127004214/pattern-for-rainbow-afghan?ref=shop_home_active .  Turns out I already had the stitch pattern at home from another project :reyes, but oh well. :P    

 

I made this one using Red Heart Soft in Navy, Teal, Turquoise, Waterscape, and Seafoam.

Making progress on the rainbow! It's very bad; I'm definitely procrastinating on some gifts in order to work on this. Color is so fun, though!

Hello everyone! The Into the Woods baby afghan is slowly taking shape! So far all I have is sky and tree trunks, but there is a lot more to come! I just thought I would share what I have so far!

That is beautiful! I can understand shunning other projects to work on this.

May I join this CAL?  Today I started the Ribbon Afghan, using 13 (14?) different colors of Red Heart Super Saver.  I haven't got enough on it for a good picture yet and besides, it's getting dark.  I'll try to photograph it in the next couple of days.  I'm already regretting making it quiiiite so big, but... we'll see how it goes. 

 

ETA: I decided while it's still early in the crocheting to make it smaller.  I cut about a foot off the end (it works up vertically) and now have an afghan going which is average size instead of an Afghanus giganticus.

 

Wow...that is all I've got say. I am looking forward to seeing the pics.

Looks great. The color choices remind me of an Amish quilt

Well, my Red Heart just didn't work up as nicely as I thought it would.  Long story into short: I started over with three colors of I Love This Yarn.  I'm using their Greybeard (a medium grey), Terra Cotta and Light Peach, and I like it so far.  Because it will be very plain in these stripes I'm thinking ahead to a nice border for it for accent.  Every color combo I've considered has had grey as an anchor because my daughter's sofa is grey.  I'll try to get a picture posted in the next couple of days.

And a baby blanket i did a couple week's ago. Just have to weave in ends. The pic doesn't show the colors well, but it is bernat baby sport in pink and white and the dark is a gray mystery yarn from big lots.

And i started this baby blanket mostly in mystery yarn I bought at auction. Well sorta mystery...its older yarn from the 80s that had been kept in plastic totes.

Thank you...I really like doing them...the pattern is a join as you go but I like to whip stitch better.

I'm finally posting the first ever Round Ripple I've made!  I finished it a while back, and should have taken some pictures of it on a darker background... but it's already gone to the recipient so that's not going to happen now.  LOL

I like those squares a lot. It's going to be a beautiful afghan. I am tempted to try this pattern as a scrap buster, but I really don't like sewing squares together, and I already have four unfinished afghans made of squares.

No, it was my ex-mother-in-law who used this stitch pattern for a lot of her afghans.  My ex sister-in-law sent it to me.  Where she originally found it I don't know.  If you click on the "..." in my post it should take you to the Etsy seller where I bought the pattern.
