I can honestly say I have never enjoyed working on an afghan the way I have this one. It is a bit over half-way complete now. The camera and lighting don't do justice to the colors of the yarn. Last night, I was able to get quite a bit done after supper. We all sat and watched a John Wayne movie, Circus World, from 1963. It was great and the time together even better. We have some cold weather here and more coming. This is a great time of year to be working on an afghan. Thanks to DD for teaching me this pattern, and to Mrs. Sheila B for inspiring me with her beautiful ripple afghans.
