The first is one I mentioned a while ago, an afghan for myself. It has so many different crochet stitches and they all merge so beautifully, I really enjoyed making this. Of course the dogs love it as well so as soon as I fold it up on the back of the couch they will paw at it until it comes down and scratch around until it is in a nice bed. Can't have anything "nice" with dogs around. I wish I could make this in wool, and some day, once my spinning technique is perfected, maybe I can, but for right now it is in a cheaper acrylic yarn, still soft but not a nice wool. I couldn't justify, in my mind, spending hundreds of $ on an afghan that, more likely than not, the dogs will use at least half the time. Here is the pattern for this afghan.
The second tiny afghan in the photo is a baby afghan for a friend. It just turned out beautifully. Again, this is a pattern that was fun to crochet and the end product is so soft and will be warm and comfy for baby. I think it is called a popcorn stitch but I didn't really follow any pattern. I alternated sc row and a row with 5 dc decrease in 1 sc, sc in next sc, 5 dc decrease in next sc, sc in next sc etc. That was it, but it turned out beautiful. If you google popcorn crochet stitch I am sure you will come up with some lovely patterns.
So these are two finished projects. Now onto something new!
