My Scrappy Steps Afghan!

I finally completed this!

I brought it to photograph in the lobby at work, as the light is much better there.

I also got a few shots of this in the leasing office of the apartments where I live....

OK so that last one isn't as well lit as the others, but it emphasizes the warmth of the colors.

It is a warm and cozy afghan. Yes, there's a pucker in it at the bottom corner, but for the very first real complete afghan I've ever made, it's not bad at all! I like this pattern A LOT.

Road Trip Shawl

I decided to chew up some of this Mexicana yarn I had, and make a larger version of the Road Trip Scarf. So this is the Road Trip Shawl. I have been considering adding long, graceful black fringe to this....but I'm not 100% sure. I used 3 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver in Mexicana colorway for this shawl.
