That's very pretty. What kind of yarn are you using?

What a gorgeous design! What a lucky couple! I agree, can't wait to see the FO!
How difficult is the "joined ring" design? (Isn't there a tradition name for it, I am forgetting?) Are they a different color?

yes they are 2 colors white & off white but together it looks yellow, no not hard to do but takes a long time because you do each one & then join them, 1 at a time & then the fill in, it's not in strips! and I will post pics when done.

That is gorgeous! What pattern is that and where did you find it?
The joined rings themselves aren't difficult, it's the lace around them.

the pattern is from the book a year of afghans 1997.

How many motifs will it be when complete? I think motif designs are so pretty, but i absolutely positively hate joining them.
01-17-2008, 01:38 PM
there are 77 main motifs + all the small fill in motifs!.:passedout:
That is so lovely! You are creating an heirloom for your son and daughter-in-law. Truly beautiful.

How long have you been working on the afghan. It looks very complicated. You are doing an awesome job. Like the others it would be great to see the finished product.
Congradulations on the wedding!!!:cheering:
Very pretty! Reminds me of Irish lace.
