FO: Afghan
This is an afghan I knitted for my sister's bridal shower, which is coming up this week. It's made with Lion Brand Chenille Thick 'n Quick in dark purple and amethyst print. The pattern is from Chenille Throws by Leisure Arts, called "Gentle Waves." I adapted it a little by substituting the 3 different colored yarns to just two. I was a little leery about working with this yarn at first, since I didn't know if would fray, but it turned out to be very easy to work with. I will definitely use this yarn again on future projects!

That is beautiful! I love the colors. How long did it take to knit?

That's gorgeous. What size needles did you use? I made a hat out of LB chenille t&q and I hated it, I found it hard to work with.
On the needles: Falling Leaves Socks, Punkin Hats, Artful Afgan and another waterlily for a friend of mine (on hold until I feel like working with that yarn again)

In the queue:
Jack Skellington baby afghan
Finished: Warm Up America Square, Basketweave Baby Blanket (now to ship it), Massachusetts Dishcloth for the Yarn Harlot, Homeless Hat
, water bottle cozy
