purple ripples

this is the (mostly) purple afghan that Auntia finished last week - she is kinda new to crochet and i (in my infinite wisdom) advised her to choose something less challenging (i was thinking a ripple scarf with two or three different colors - not an entire afghan with multiple types of yarn) but she pooh-pahed me ... and see how wrong i was?!? she didn't know how to work the reverse crochet border, so she practiced the stitch by making a baby blanket (that will go to the hospital for our first glimpse of Littlelle - when she decides to make an appearance) ... Auntia has no problem modifying a pattern's shape, size and colors to make it her own ... have i mentioned how amazing my daughter is? and she started another afghan (with pinks and yellows) ... she's listening to Wizard's First Rule on mp3 and crocheting like crazy!

  1. DH's aunt made this afghan for us many years ago and it's still a favorite.

    ps--I couldn't reply to your comment on mine! Yes, it was twisted, but that's how my brain usually works!
