WIP: My Popcorn Afghan
Hi Everyone... just a couple of pics. of my crochet project... I have been splitting my time between this and a lace wrap... so not as far along as I wish... OH, and White is really hard to photograph! I wound up adding a green stripe, and will do another one towards the end. It's not perfect, but I am pleased thus far!

Thanks! Lisa

Thanks y'all... I am really glad all of y'all inspired me to start this, becuz it is a nice break from the lace wrap... which I have had to frog back several times because of getting distracted (Thanks to KH folks for introducing me to lifelines!!! )

That looks really nice. I think you're doing a great job on it, and the green will look great at both ends.

Wow that is beauiful! How hard is the pattern? Are boobles harder in crochet or knitting?

It's not hard... took a few read throughs for me (been out of it for so long).... but I like it because every row is different (within the repeat), so I don't get bored.

I have never tried bobbles in knitting, so am not sure -- I know they are super easy in the crochet (would have to be for me to get it down!)

I forgot to post the pattern link first post, so here it is Popcorn Ripple Afghan

Thanks!
