Famous last words

Just yesterday I was bemoaning the fact I have been uninspired, craftily speaking, so what do I do today? I begin a baby afghan for a co-worker's baby shower to be held in the middle of June. Here's your first look at Abigaile's Afghan . . .

After the red, there will be two more colors before the colors repeat.

This is a basic ripple afghan. The pattern is three rows of double crochet in whatever wonderful color(s) you have handy followed by one row of single crochet in the highlight color.

I'm using fingering weight/sock yarn with a size G (US) crochet hook. Starting with a 219 stitch chain gets an afghan about 28 - 29 inches in width. Since it's not done yet, I can't tell you how long it will be. Well, that isn't strictly true. I could do the math to figure it out, but this is the weekend and I don't do math.

I love it - wonderful colors!

(So you charge extra for math on weekends, eh?) :-)

Where is mine?

I'm tossing around an idea for more afghans to use up some of my stash. This would be a very, very longtime project.
