Just finishing up the ends on this afghan. It is going to be a gift for my Dad. When I asked him what his favorite color was he said the color of the sky at sunset. So I went in search of yarn and a pattern to make him an afghan. It took several trips to several yarn stores to find exactly what I was looking for. I also went through three patterns before finding the right one.....I should have known it would be a round ripple, I seem to gravitate towards those. The pattern is available at The Croochet Crowd.com. It's call spectrum round afghan. I wanted a flowing color pattern so I choose to double strand as well as blend the colors. I am calling it 12 tentacle yarn monster because I used a total of 24 skeins of yarn. Varying from the smallest (2 oz) up to the largest 6 oz. I used Vanna's choice, caron simply soft, loops and threads impeccable and charisma,, hobby lobby i love this yarn sport, yarn bee soft secret, fleischers (vintage), red heart soft and two small balls of mystery yarn from my stash. More details will be on my blog soon.
Enough rambling, time for pictures........attachment=62203:HPIM2660.JPG]
