well it looks like I've been talked into making another afghan for a Xmas present, but need some ideas for the type of yarn and colors. Found out that the person's favorite colors are greens and creams, Would like a yarn that machine washable, preferably, and prices fairly reasonable ($5 or less) Would appreciate any suggestions.

I would go CHUNKY...maybe Homespun (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/homespun.htm)? Or some big fat chenille (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/ch-thick.html)?

OH! OH! Even better! WOOL-EASE THICK & QUICK (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/we-thick.htm)!

Check out Plymouth Encore. Machine washable and dryable, lots of colors, inexpensive. I use it for everything that I need to be able to throw in the washer and dryer.
