Okay, here it is, the mile-a-minute afghan I call Forty Shades of Green. It is sitting on the back of a small couch at the Community College Library, in the study area outside of my son's office. (He took the photo for me, as I am a truly rotten picture-taker!!) Now I am concentrating on the green Breadfruit Hawaiian style quilt and the sleeves for the green Aran. Gee...how did everything end up GREEN right now? Maybe because it's Spring?

The work in progress above is a green Aran pattern. The yarn is cheap acrylic called green fleck. For my own use, I use acrylic, not because I want to, but because I have a skin disorder & can't comfortably wear wool and alpaca is even worse. I have now finished the front and back & attached one shoulder by three-needle-bind-off. All that is left is neckline ribbing and the two sleeves!! The pattern is by Grandma on the Mountain (www.aranknits.com). I am also working on, not pictured yet, a Mile-a-Minute Afghan I call Forty Shades of Green using green varigated, mint, and dark greens. The quilt I am working on is also GREEN, but it is a dark green, Hawaiian style, about 50 inches square, in the Breadfruit design (a commercial pattern by Kathy Tsark). I try to keep busy.
(PS. It is supposed to be 82 degrees here today. Snow last Monday, 82 today....go figure!)
