This is the afghan I am putting in the fair. I am unable to get a decent picture of it. Where I can get a good picture of the color the camera doesn't want to focus and in the light it looks awful. Maybe tomorrow I will take one in natural light and change the picture.
Otherwise, it is a pattern for a dish cloth that I liked so much that I made it large into afghan size. The yarn is super soft and has rich dark colors. Dancer picked out the yarn to do a project and then lost interest in it. I loved the yarn and couldn't let it lay unused so I tore out what she had abandoned use it. I did have to buy a few more skeins, she only had two and I think this used about seven. It is all double crocheted and grew quite quickly. I started it in April and by working on it a little here and a little there I have it done in less than four months. Nikki likes it, every time I would sit down to work on it she would want to crawl underneath it and hunker down. When it was a little about a foot and half across she would come and just put her snout under it. Spark thinks it could be a portal, where you would jump into the middle of it and come out somewhere else. Either that or a spider web. I didn't think it was going to have some many imaginative possibilities when I started it.
