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.


  1. Hi! LOVE the afghan!! I'm sorry it is taking me so long to get back with you about the loom I used for the scarf! My uncle made it for me. It is similar to the Knifty Knitter loom/scarf board. Only the pegs are much smaller and closer together. I have seen similar looms on line somewhere, but I can't remember where!

  2. Thank you, been busy working on Xmas gifts hope to get back to the afghan soon, this one is for my hubby. I have an order for another from a dear friend so that will be next....
    Still looking for the right loom...will continue the search:)
