What I've been working on

I began a new afghan I came across this pattern from Annies Attic for Bavarian Crochet and fell in love with the look. If you use the right color combination you will end up with a stunning afghan. My afghan was at first a test of the pattern, so the colors I started with were white and burgandy. But I was not feeling the love for the white yarn...not because of the color but because it was some Redheart yarn I've had around for a few yrs and it was killing my hands with the stiffness of it....Had crocheted for years using Redheart yarns and this skein is just awful. So I decided to use up the Bernat Berella"4" I have in the burgandy, light and dark taupe colors.
What do you think so far?

I've finished my sons girl friends scarf, the pattern is called Old Shale. I really love this pattern and it was an easy lace knit. Though the yarn was not my favorite to work with (soft baby yarn that creates a halo with wear) for this pattern, but it will be easy for her to care for and she loved the color.
