Cathedral Window Afghan and a giveaway!
So I've been wanting to make this afghan for a while. Good night, I know. I always have so many things going. But I work on them all. This is the thing I'm using right now for those 'I just have a few minutes, but I wanna crochet.' moments. It's all about making small pieces to piece together right now, so it works for that. I've made the center, see how I'm using Fall colors for it? That's because I picture this eventually in my living room, and I love greens, reds, and golds in my living room. Heck, I love greens, red, and golds anywhere. LOL I'm using Red Heart Fall for this. I'm also using burgundy, coffee, and buff, also Red Heart. I plan to use this afghan decoratively, not for cuddling in, so the Red Heart is fine. I've got the center made, and I'm working on the little pentagons surrounding it now. Those pentagons are made using two strands of yarn together. That's the first time I've done that, and it's not hard to do like I thought it would be. This center octagon kind of curls up, but I'm not worried about that. The weight of those pentagons is gonna straighten it out, I'm sure. Once I've got all the pentagons done, I'll show you another picture. Don't hold your breath, because I'm not going to hurry with this one, I think it'll take a while. But I'll let you know. LOL
