First Post!

For some of my first posts, I'd like to post pictures of some things I've made in the past, and write about them a bit.

So for the first post, I'll post the first thing I ever made. My afghan, which is proudly displayed on the back of my couch.

Here it is spread out over our old couch. I made this over a few years. I'd stop and start and stop and start again. I started it in late 1997 or maybe early 1998, during my freshman year of college at EC. I love the colors of it. It's made of Red Heart SS acrylic, in Wedgewood (the variegated), rose pink, country blue and country rose. I didn't finish this until 2 1/2 years later. It's big enough to cover my full sized bed with some hanging down around. I haven't tried it on the queen size yet. I'm very proud of this afghan. You can see in the middle it's quite puckered and if you could see closer you'd notice the stitches are very loose. After the first 10 rows I managed to catch on pretty well and the rest is fine. I did do other things over those 2 1/2 years, so this wasn't the only thing I worked on!

My first afghan was a green and gold ripple (Packer fan here *G*). One end was much shorter than the other. LOL
