AfghanOMania

This is my "Blueberries & Cream" afghan, which I made many years ago and still have in my possession. It's double-thick and large enough to be a bedspread. The warmth it gives is great for the coldest part of winter, but it's almost too warm for the rest of the year. Still, I love the soothing colors so much I haven't wanted to part with it - yet.

I'm taking a break from CycleCasting to bring you some more photos of my creativity. Many of you have heard me talk, sometimes endlessly, about my crochet habit. One of my favorite things to crochet is the endlessly-useful afghan. Not only are they warm and cozy, but they offer endless opportunities for color and pattern, and best of all - require no measuring. I just crochet until the afghan gets big enough to wrap up in, or until I run out of yarn, whichever comes first. I took these pictures a few months ago, and just posted them to my digital files.

I made this afghan last year, to play with color. I designed it myself, using some favorite stitch patterns. Joining the blocks together is not usually my thing, but this one went well, I think because I was jazzed by the colors. It's nearly large enough to be a twin bedspread.


The coral-colored afghan to the right, below, is one of my first log cabin afghans. It's made in the classic log cabin quilt pattern, and the crochet process is almost identical to the quilting way. When I get ambitious I like to make crochet-quilts. I made this afghan over ten years ago, and it's still in good shape.

That's all for now, fellow-travelers. This has been a good chance for me to practice playing around with all the picture-management and editing files I've got that I still don't fully know how to use. But I'm getting a little better at it, one day at a time.
The gorgeous colors in these photos are there thanks to my neighborhood Walgreens! I took the pictures with an inexpensive Walgreens film camera, then had the store develop the prints and put them on a picture CD at at the same time. Since this is the only kind of day-to-day photography my budget will allow, I'm really happy to have such great results.
There's another CycleCast coming soon, so stay tuned.
