A Sneak Peak At My Newest Afghan!!

Hey Ya'll,

I am ashamed to say that last night I had another stuck episode!  I had some pieces of Hot Dog with mustard, and some Cottage Cheese.  I didn't even finish it all and I realized that I was going to be stuck.  Sure enough, I started to slime....then before you know it, I was vomiting the Hot Dog and Cottage Cheese up!  But I immediately felt better!  On a better note.... 

Here are a couple photos of my newest Afghan, that I am making for my Mom.  I an making it in squares, that will be sewn together.  It is in the colors of a Bird Of Paradise flower!  I am making two different patterns.  The original and a reverse pattern.  And of course I changed the pattern that I am following!  The original pattern that I am going by, only calls for 3 colors, and 6 rounds.  I am making it in 5 colors and 9 rounds!!  It just wouldn't be made by me, if I didn't change the pattern in some way....LOL   At any rate, it definitely looks Tropical, which is what I was going for!  LOL

And it will definitely be colorful.  Both Walt and I love the colors, and think that it will be the prettiest Afghan that I have made yet!!  And remember that the colors didn't come out as pretty in these photos, as they really are in person....I am using a bright yellow, bright orange, fire engine red, a plum (Vanna's choice wild berry) and bright green.  In fact, the red and green kind of reminds me of Christmas green and red!!!  So without further ado....here are the photos, I hope that you like them!!




This is the original pattern where it goes from bright to dark.  And please excuse the towel that it is laying on!!













And this is the reverse pattern.  And like I said, the colors aren't nearly as pretty as they are in person!!










So.....I hope that you like them so far.  They look so much better in person!  Till next time....

Aloha My Friends  :)

Thank you everyone!! I know that the colors didn't photograph well, but they really do look great together! Hopefully when the Afghan is finished, I will be able to get a better photo of it!

As for the PB's, I agree, they are never fun, but at least this one was short and sweet....

Cece-as for reading about others PB's, trust me, I have plenty of them in posts to read about!! One of my worst was one of my 1st ones! I ate breakfast at a restaurant and had some pancakes, and trust me....pancakes are EVIL!! LOL In fact, I think that post was titled, Pancakes Are Evil!! LOL Yes, I can laugh about it now, but it sure wasn't fun then! :)
