AussieYank, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like the brightness of the color combo as I normally work in very muted tones for myself. Lots of projects for others represented in the afghan.

auburnchick, thanks! I originally set out to make it larger but started running out of colors (I wanted each equally represented). Not sure who'll end up with it but am thinking I may send it to my folks, who can always use something like this, plus when my little nephew visits (he's one-and-a-half) it would be handy for his naps.

debinoz, thanks for reminding of the term 'stained glass.' Didn't set out for that look but does have that effect.

That is exactly what I have been wanting to do with my leftovers! I highly doubt mine would turn out as nice though. I do tend to have a problem with gauge, as in I never get it

Thanks, Mulderknitter! I so rarely work with the ndls/yarn recommended for a project, or when designing my own, that it's gotten easier to adjust gauge. But there were some sqs that took several starts to achieve the width I wanted. The upside to doing sqs is you're only ripping out a handful of sts. They work up so quickly it felt almost mindless at times.

Who lived in Mpls area for many decades! I hear your temps have finally cooled off.

Cam-
yes, the temps have finally cooled to the 80's, but today we have wind advisories for over 40mph winds! We did finally get some rain the other day, all of our lawns look like wheat fields!
