I wanted to post a picture of the afghan I'm working on. I didn't get to it last night and probably won't tonight either. Sleep is beckoning me and I must be rested for all the kiddos in the morning!
Here's what I have so far... Now my husband has informed me that the original pattern won't be big enough because he wants to be able to cover up all the way with it instead of just lay it over our laps. With his 6'5" frame, this is no small task. Easy, yes, just time consuming. The colors are a deep red, charcoal grey (I would've liked something less black, but there wasn't this option at the store), and cream. I chose these colors because my bridesmaids wore charcoal grey dresses with red waistbands. I found white yarn, but thought it looked too close to being patriotic/valentines colors and went with cream instead for a softer touch.
Hopefully tomorrow I can crochet another square... maybe finish by Spring? Ok, realistically by Summer :)
