Mother's Day Afghan Update

Not sure if you remember, but I started this project while in San Diego this past December. My MIL asked me to make her an afghan to go in one of the guest bedrooms that she just redone. She picked out a pattern out of one of the afghan books that I had and we gathered swatches of the fabric she brought back from her trip to France and we high tailed it to the local Michaels. These are the two colors she picked: Vanna's Choice, in Linen and Simply Soft , in Grey Heather. . The pattern called for 3 colors but she wanted only these two so I altered the pattern and this is how it will look. I have almost all 40 squares with 8 of the 10 rounds completed. You can see in the photos the one square that is complete. I think once it is together it is going to look so beautiful. I just know that she is going to love it.





If you know me, you know that I am not wild about putting squares together. I don't mind making the squares but I detest putting them together, (maybe because I am so bad at it).

Anyway I have been working slow in this one and working on it mostly weekends only. Now that it is getting close to being finished I am working on it more. I will post a photo once it is completed.

*hugs*

It's a beautiful combination. She will love it! Your work is exquisite. Thanks for the progress report. It's neat to see how things move along and then the finished product.

Scarlet, the pattern for the Dr. Who scarf is on the internet, but I don't have the address. If you google it, you should find something. It is just knit, and changing colors. Very easy.

You're looking for the Dr. Who pattern? I am a big Who fan and I have found a couple different things. I will e-mail to you.

P.S. You can buy the scarves at Ebay if you want to pay the bucks. I'd love to have one myself.
