FO: Summer project
This is the afghan I made for a Project Linus teenager. The pattern is vintage Columbia-Minerva. Name of the pattern is Blue and White Afghan. I started on 05/25/2012 and finished on 08/25/2012. On hot days I had a fan blowing on me in an air-conditioned room!

Second photo is when I was crocheting the panels together.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I did giggle at the "blue and white afghan" title though. I really love the color combo.

The Blue and White Afghan is stunning but I wanted to use yarn I had on hand...didn't even make a dent in my stash...
