This one is what I call Ariel's afghan...I am making it in his university colors:

This is going to be one of the most amazing projects I've done. I just hope I have enough of the Seaspray Ombre yarn to finish it. I just sent for three more rolls of that yarn and I think I've used maybe....2 so far but I'm not really sure.

Then there's this one:
I love the corner-to-corner granny stripe. It works up fast. I decided to keep this very simple. I like it.
I am working on another blue/white entrelac afghan but this keeps happening:
Wee Sonshine thinks this is all about HIM. Well...my boys do rule the household with iron paws. I am their devoted and joyful servant.
I have also been doing some experiments with mitered squares. This red one is done Tunisian style:
So there we are! Yay!

Sometimes basic granny squares can make a very striking afghan. I love these colors. There's something of a "retro" look about it to me. But someone saw this afghan and decided to buy it off of me!

I have a few afghans I'm working on now.
First is the one I call the "Hufflepuff afghan" - it's a black/gold entrelac blanket. It's of a good size now to cover my legs as I work, and given the temperatures recently, this is a GOOD THING:
I'm also doing a Mile a Minute in a neon variegated yarn and bright yellow; it's for someone I know.

So I did!
This color is now discontinued, but I'm considering picking up 3 rolls of Sugarwheel yarn at Hobby Lobby and making another one - only bigger. We'll see.

I'm working on another one in red/white/blue - very patriotic:
For a lot of people, c2c is their default or "go to" pattern when making an afghan for someone. For me, this is my default pattern - the diagonal granny stripe/biased granny/c2c granny. I find it easy and it can be worked up fast.
