finished wip

i finished the sampler afghan finally...i think it turned out pretty nice...there were 6 rounds to the border so it was almost like another row of squares...

current wip

currently blocking the squares to the sampler project....should be 10 inch squares and some are really stretched due to type of stitch...this will help me get a more uniform look- and even things up...

current wips

i have 3 projects that i am working on at present...the squares pattern is the free pattern highlighted a week ago...there will be 12 squares altogether and i am currently struggling with number 6 so i put it aside...i also substituted the navy blue square with a different pattern because i didn't like the one in the instructions...
the rainbow pattern is a simple hexagonal granny square pattern that is useful to use up scrap yarn...i don't have much leftover yarn but i do have one skein here and one, i chose this pattern...i bought the instructions from Herrschners 2008 national contest winners....
the other project i'm working on is a bit more's a greek keys pattern from 'mosaic magic afghans made easy' by lily m. chin...not sure who she's's a bit tough to figure out what is being asked in the pattern...long double crochet post stitches....i've wanted to try some of these patterns since i bought the book years ago...this is the year...
