New Home Anti Stress Afghan Progress


My idea to crochet an afghan for our new home,  where ever it may be, has really helped keep my stress while we wait to a minimum. The problem is I am almost finished! I have completed 25 squares, except for a final join-as-I-go round in the Winter Night yarn you see on top of the squares in the photo. I think the afghan will measure around 6 feet square. I think I need to start  a second project for our new home, while we continue to wait for the right job to meet up with Oscar :-}
I tried to keep the colors for this afghan within a fairly narrow range, shading from green through a faint purple, with added colors of gray and black. the final result, I think, will be very restful and something easy to live with for Oscar on a daily basis in our living room. My next afghan will be smaller, just enough for a lap rug and maybe long enough to cover my feet. I will be making it REALLY scrappy. Although I would wish for a darker main color, what I have is a creamy white that may be enough to work what I have in mind. It will be based on a photo from my friend Mokihana's blog. I couldn't find the pattern on Ravelry, but Moki-chan sent me some REALLY good photos, so I can figure out the pattern. If she allows, I will make the pattern a free download on Ravelry when I get it written up and photos taken.

Wow, 25 of those? That's a lot of work, and it will be perfect in your new home. Wishing you both all the best.

Maybe matching/coordinating throw pillows?
