Vintage Afghan with Earl Grey's help
The past several days I have been working on an afghan pattern I found in a Ravelry group. The official name is Vintage Vertical Stripe Crocheted Blanket Pattern, and it can be found at http://belladia.typepad.com/bella_dia/2006/11/vintage_vertica.html
It is slow-going, and takes about a baseball sized scrap of yarn. I'm using the Clover Soft-touch size I hook, and am getting used to it now. Somehow, this afghan looks better in person than in the photo. I'll be glad when it gets a little bigger, so I can cover up with it while I work on it. It's been bitter cold here, and shows no sign of warming up. More snow predicted tonight. Ugh!! I'm enjoying this project.
