so i decided to do this afghan at the first of the year.. and i debated.. and obsessed etc about yarn and what i wanted to do and how many colours etc..
so finally .. i just decided i was doing it ! and went into my office and grabbed out some cones of 900 ypp chenille and set to it.. of course the stitches arent as defined as they would have been in a smooth yarn but i think it turned out fairly smashing to say the least..
i started this on Valentines Day.. and finished it last night.. not to shabby seeing as in the interim i made another blanket for a good friend..with matching stuff bag(pictured below) two bags.. and dyed about 2500 yards of yarn ..(some made it to the side bar over there --->>>)
the pattern i used is from Leisure Arts.. Afghans for All Seasons.. called Stitch Sampler.. i know its found else where as well called Bobbles and Lace.. that is what the Crochet Along at the Ville is being called..
so here it is in various stages.. and completed.. also with a detail so you can see the colours better.. i used.. sea glass.. pesto.. wheat..beige.. chartruese..mahogany..chocolate.. and a marled sage/burgandy/golden brown.
Detail: Finished: Round 70: Round 50:
