Granny afghan

I've finished a granny afghan for my niece Krystal. Actually it's for her baby girl. I alternated 2 rounds of RHSS aran with 2 rounds of a different variation of pinks.

living room valances

Vince and I have made some valances for the living room. Vince made the wood boxes and then I covered them with batting and fabric. The colors of the fabric are perfect. Pay no attention to the van outside of my front windows - it's the neighbor's work van and I think I'm about to complain. It's not a very nice view.

Kristal's afghan for her baby

My niece Kristal is having a baby so I have started a round ripple afghan for her. She's been told that she's having a girl so I am using girly colors. I'm also going to be making some hats and other stuff.

I have changed the afghan to just the Bernat Neopolitan and RHSS aran yarns. The TLC essentials rose just didn't look right. I unraveled to the 6th round and then started again. It will be a repeat of 4 rounds neopolitan, 4 rounds aran, 2 rounds neopolitan, 2 rounds, aran.

Here's a picture of the finished afghan. I love working these round ripples - that is, until I get to the last couple of rows. They take forever.
