That is so pretty. Very 'country cottage', would look great draped on a bed. Mine for instance! :)

Redmom, I don't know what I like better...your finished afghan (which is VERY pretty, by the way!), or your avatar! :teehee::eyebrow::drool:

The project my crochet instructor chose for our class is an afghan, and I'm a bit overwhelmed. I hope I can finish it.:thud:If you don't mind me asking, how long did yours take?

thanks, I'm way to old but I love johnny depp:aww:. the afghan took about a week, it is 60" & just one big granny square, so very fast to crochet:).

its soo pretty. i've only crochet very little. I'm determined to become a better crocheter. this gives me inspiration. i just find knitting to be sooo much easier plus i learned how so young. and just learned how to crochet oh 2 months ago.

I learned to crochet as a kid so for me its easy, but I am a new knitter & it's very hard!.

What a lovely blanket! It has a lot of charm. And is that really Jack Sparrow???

the afghan took about a week,

:noway: WOW!!! One week???? You are QUICK!!! I'm almost halfway done with an afghan for my crochet class, and it took me a week to get there; the pattern has you crochet length-wise which makes for long rows. Mine is 80" long, and when I'm done it should be 48" wide.

I'd like to learn how to do granny squares at our next crochet class. There are two cool crocheted afghans at Lion Brand using the technique you did that I may like to try at some point; this one (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60202AD.html) and this one (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60505A.html?noImages=0) (but the latter in a "big person" size). But I like yours, and echo what others have already said, very "country cottage" and very delicate.

yes that is jack sparrow!.:thumbsup:

So pretty! I :heart: it!

You did a wonderful job with the colors. If you can do this with any old bag of yarn I'd love to see what you can do when you pick the yarn! :cool:

That turned out really pretty. Great job! :yay:

I'm still admiring this blanket! The yarn looks delicate--was it worsted or lighter weight? What size hook did you use?

10-21-2007, 10:40 AM
cloud9Very beautiful. You've definitely got an eye for color. :yay:

10-21-2007, 01:38 PM

Very pretty colors. Great job on it!

That's so pretty! You just used some stashed yarn you got on Craigslist? Wow. You did a great job of choosing when to use which color!
