A little progress



This afghan is really testing my color sensibilities. I don't know if I've ever worked on a project that used this many colors at once. My 7 y/o has claimed the afghan as his and the colors make him happy. He is even helping to make the decision as to which color to use next, and I'm thrilled to give up the job. I'm sure the next one I make will still be colorful but more muted shades. I want to feel relaxed when I look at it. That said, I'm still happy with the pattern and the process.
I just received Jan Eaton's book from Amazon yesterday and I'm already dreaming up future projects. My neighbor has asked for help to choose a pattern for an afghan for her grandbaby. There are so many great choices in this book that I'm sure we'll come up with something.
Keep up the great work everyone!
