These are fabulous--and they're nice and large, too. I always get to a certain point in my afghan making (about the size of my regular size bed) and call it "good 'nough"! After seeing your afghans, though, I'm thinking perhaps I should try for a bit larger size next time.

Those are both really lovely. I admire you for being able to stick to it and turn out such beautiful work. Thanks very much for posting the finished (and almost finished) afghans.
What kind of yarn are you using?

Lovely ripples! I like them both but the blue/purple one is just so relaxing to look at zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ....oops! Iwent to sleep on the keyboard!

I like big afghans. I've made 2 that would cover the top of a queen bed easy, my daughter made one big enough to use as a bedspread for their king size bed.

For these throws I only use Red Heart Comfort yarn and a size 5mm hook.
