*~Wish me luck~*

I am embarking on a new project that is somewhat ambitious, but far too cute to not try. I got so many amazing patterns for fun projects in this crochet magazine, this one, by far my favorite. I couldn't hold myself back any longer, so here I go.

bright cheery afghan

Is this not the cutest afghan ever? Seriously, I think I squeeled when I saw this picture. I really bought this magazine because they have a darling Santa (you know how much I love him) Suit pattern inside. I kept flipping through ooohing and aaahing at all the beautiful things I would like to make and then there it was, on the last page.

I loved the colors, so bright and cheery and thought this would be a perfect gift for my niece, Danee. She is nine, so it is becoming more and more difficult to buy things for her. She is getting a little too old for toys, and she likes to shop for her own clothes. Fortunately, she LOVES to read. So I have been buying The American Girl series of books for her. But, I like to give her something cute and girly that she will love too.

I have done some work so far. The yarn is so soft and I am very happy with what I have done so far. I'll post more photos once I finish. If it ends up not being too much work, I plan to make a double-size afghan for myself. :-)


  1. ok this is making me want to learn to crochet.. i love finding things that are so much cuter than anyone could find or buy at a store.

    I would love for you to post some of your wedding photos, the one of the shoes on the fence is AMAZING. Not many people i know have dreamy beach weddings and it would be fun for all of us to see.

  2. CanNOT wait to see this Stefanie! :)

  3. This looks like a cool project to do. I love all the pictures (especially the yarn). Good luck!

  4. Don't you just love the beginning of a project where you moon over the colors and textures of the yarn! It's going to be beautiful!
