I got the pattern from this site--some of their afghans are off the hook! I used Encore and 3 shades of Mister Joe in grey to create the different shades. My daughter got this for Christmas--machine washable because of 2 cats, a dog, a rabbit, and some sugar gliders.

WOW! That is so cool! And so beautiful!
Can I ask, though, what the heck is a 'sugar glider'?
For that matter, I wish somebody would post all those initials everybody uses because I have no idea what they mean, for instance, dd, and dh I think mean dear husband and dear daughter?
What do they all mean? :shrug:
THANX, sue

http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=36380 We have a whole thread on the abbreviations, since so many people are kind of :?? when they start out.

This is a sugar glider. They are almost like flying squirrels in that they have a web of skin between their front and back legs to glide to where they want to go. They're very cute, but they're nocturnal and noisy and smelly. :ick: She brought them with her a couple of years ago, and we let them loose in the bathroom for pics.

I fell in love with wooly thoughts when I first saw KristinaB's Curve of Pursuit on Ravelry (pic below). I bought that pattern, plus Fibo-Optic, Double Vision, Amazement, and Making Waves. There are so many more I want! I haven't made any yet because I want them to be *perfect*. I think I have enough Malabrigo in Frank Ochre and Rhodesian for Making Waves, and I'll probably start it after I finish the Noro log cabin blanket I am making for my mom.

As for my first love, Curve of Pursuit, now that I've realized how much of her own discretion KristinaB used for her version (original has only 2 colors!), I'm totally intimidated.

Ingrid, this afghan is so weird. Cool weird, but totally "Whoa". It will be a real addition on a bed and a great conversation piece.

Thanks for the picture of the sugar glider. I also wondered what that was. Bird maybe? Nope, big eyed mammal. LOL Very cute.

As is usual, Ingrid, your work amazes! This is truly eye catching!
Thanks for the link, too! I appreciate your notes as well! Did you post it up on your Ravelry Projects Notebook, too? I'll take a peek over there!

I did post it over there, and the designer contacted me and asked if she could put it over at WoollyThoughts in the gallery. Of course, I said yes. :happydance:She didn't know when it would get up, though.
