I finished my striped stockinette blankey. It sits here on a double bed, so you can get an idea of its size.



and widthwise:


the bottom is stockinette, with 3 rows reverse stockinette. Both sides are 3 knit stitches.


and the top is all reverse stockinette:



I like to distinguish a top from a bottom on an afghan, so you don't accidentally tuck the stinky feet part under your chin, but that's just a silly hangup of mine.

Well, I gave it to DD the night before Easter. I told her that I didn't want her to think that the Easter Bunny knit it for her. She loved it.

You got a winner there! looks much loved already.

Here's my newest one, not following the pattern originally started, more of a square (so far).....




Not sure what to do next, color-wise. I don't plan ahead, just like to fly by the seat of my pants, so to speak.

I think I'll need to buy more colors, for a light/dark effect. Maybe a solid darker brown, and a darker green. For the light, I'll need white and maybe a paler yellow? Off to shop!

Thanks everyone.

Woodi, looking good. I like the thought of of the light/dark effect.

Mine 2nd LC is coming along. I'll post pix soon. I am also working on a 6 hr Afghan. I am using 4 strands of Lion Homespun held together and size 50 needles. It's really kinda silly knitting with such large needles, but it goes fast and I love the coziness of it so far. I'll post pix of that too soon. I have enough Homespun to make 3 of these afghans. I know what I'm making for Christmas

Oh, lovemykid.....I want to see this 6-hour afghan. Sounds like a great idea for great Xmas gifts. I don't know if I've ever seen size 50 needles. Great fun!

Here's more of my ghan: (got the flu today, so sitting tight and knitting):
