I don't think I will be participating fully, but will be making the squares and assembling the afghan. I think it is going to be fun. I love CAL's anyway. I have decided to do mine in Vanna's Choice yarns and have started out with Dusty Green. I am also making the second square with I Love This Yarn, (and I sure do), in Mid Green. It is the same weight and has the same feel as Vanna's Choice. I am using a "J" hook.
I enjoyed the squares this week. They were quite simple and worked up quickly. I like how they look though and I am anxiously awaiting next Wednesdays' offerings. I am not an entered member of this afghan, so therefore won't be entering any photos on the Bernat site. So, if you want to see how I am doing you will have to check here to see my progress. So many people I know are making this afghan and I sure will be watching those I know, as they work their magic.
Also, I have entered a photo here of the start of my shawl. It is a Lion Brand pattern and you can find it here: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/cwes-diagonalShawl.html
I am making it with Aztec, by Red Heart in the color Passion. For this project I have decided to use a "J" hook also and instead of a sc I am using a hdc instead. I have completed three rows at this point.
OH, and if you have followed me before you know that I always make adjustments to a pattern, or almost always, I am sorry to the designers for this but I can't seem to help myself. This time I changed the diagonal fpdc to a straight line fpdc. Here is what I have done so far, with seven rows:The color looks different, I think it is the intensity of the light. The color is the same in both photos. What is difficult to see is the FPDC in the pattern. I tried to make the photo larger thinking that might help but it didn't. At this point I have used two 3oz skeins of yarn only.
