A friend that I work with asked me if I would make an afghan for her 1 year old niece for Christmas. Well of course I would! I tried about 3 different patterns and just wasn't "feeling" any of them. Then along came Pammy Sue with her Good & Plenty afghan, so I tried it. I really like the look of it and just love how fast it works.
I followed the pattern from Pammy Sue, but decided to have the stripes going vertically instead of horizontally.
I think it turned out all cutesy and girly! Stephanie loves it and said she may keep it for herself.
I told her if she would be nice and give it to her niece like planned I would make her one for a wedding present in different colors.
I didn't use the same edging she did. I single crocheted 2 rows of pink all around, one sc row of white, and two sc rows of purple. Then I added a ruffled edge from The Garden Bells Dark Side of the Moon afghan. If you get a chance check out both of these ladies sites, http://www.scottys-place.blogspot.com/ and http://www.thegardenbell.blogspot.com/. They both have beautiful crochet items, recipes, and Pammy Sue's dogs are just adorable.
I love this time of year! The trees around here have finally started putting on a show. Just one week ago this tree in my side yard was still green, and look how beautiful it is today.
