These are all great!! I haven't made progress with the RR but I started my 6 year old an afghan that'll be made out of 20 8" squares in his colors of choice!!

 

Red black & White.. 

 

Once again - the colors don't show well, The lighting in my house was bad that day..

I want to join in here too, if y'all don't mind. I have finished 1 lapghan for my parents and am working on a baby ghan at the moment. I also have a full size afhan that I have been working on for way too long so I hope to finish it soon too. I will post pics later on.

Great start! I love that pattern and have made quite a few of them. Once I finish the afghan I started for my grandson to be, I was thinking of making a RR for my boss's baby girl due in May. I have quite a bit of cream/pink/brown variegated yarn in stash and I'll mix that in to the blanket.

You're having another grandson?!?!  Since the Tote CAL fizzled, I haven't been in the same threads as you, so I hadn't heard the news - CONGRATULATIONS!!!  :hug

Nice blanket, Tanya!!!

 

Oh, a technology free weekend sounds great Nicole!!! I had a lot of time away from the computer during Hurricane Sandy - 10 days of no power- and I did get a lot of crocheting and reading done during that time!

This is the lapghan for my parents. My camera didn't pick up the colors well.

The pattern is the Drop in the Pond pattern on ravelry.

  I really like it. With him being born in March, I'm sure his mom will like the greens (my daughter is a March baby).
 
I finally finished an afghan that I have been working on for about a year and a half. It is made with yarn that I bought at a yard sale and then didn't like. It is going to the homeless shelter on Saturday, and hopefully will find an owner who won't be picky about the colors.


I like it, but sometimes I have the same issue, I buy yarn because I like the colors and when I finally use it, I wonder what possessed me to buy it.
I'm sure it will find an owner who likes the colors.

That drop in the pond afghan is beautiful. I love the very graphic look of it. Thanks for the pattern info.

Baby blanket looks so pretty. What is the name of that pattern?

I'll jump in here! I've got an Intarsia Wedding Afghan to get busy with...plus...a grandbaby coming from that union due in July!  It would be nice if they could get their wedding ghan before the baby! 

 

I think it's going to be a little of a challenge for me. I might need you all's great support to get this one done!

I wanted to add a pic of the charted pattern but couldn't find the option to add one?

I love that two-sided baby afghan.  That's going to have to go in my to-do list.  Thank you for sharing!

I finished 3 doll-ghans for my friends daughter (only counting these as 1 afghan though...lol).

Then I decided to use up some of my stash and made this one today - 20 skeins of Chinchilla yarn and a Q hook! Came out to 48" square.

Nice looking blankets. WTG on finishing that entire afghan in one day
I've often wanted to make doll blankets, but don't know what I would do with them. Guess I could make premie blankets, though.

That is really nice. I love Lucy's eye for color. Unfortunately I don't have it at all.

I still have yet to get working on that afghan for my son! I am a little more than half done with a lapghan for a charity project. Does that count? :think

So glad that it is Friday. I am also glad that my hubby is working tomorrow, it will give me some more time to crochet. I am trying to finish up a baby ripple afghan, but will probably run out of yarn before I finished.

You're having another grandson?!?!  Since the Tote CAL fizzled, I haven't been in the same threads as you, so I hadn't heard the news - CONGRATULATIONS!!!  :hug

Hi Melani!!! Yes, I'm very excited- another grandson should be making his appearance in a few weeks!!! My DD is due 3/14, but she had my first 10 days early so who knows??? How are you and your kiddos?

 

I've been super busy at work- crazy long hours and recently had to work some weekends (oh, the joys of being a salaried employee and not getting extra $ for the hours- NOT) :lol  But things have calmed down a bit- and will get busy again in a few weeks. But I'm taking some time whenever DD needs a helping hand!
