Update and Completed Afghans

So the latest update for me is that the numbness in my hands has finally gone away so I'm able to crochet as much as I want to....which is a lot. I've also finally gotten around to taking photos of all my completed blankets.

This is the most recent one I've completed. I'm very proud of it since it's the first time I've tried to make a blanket using two strands of yarn at once. It makes it nice and comfy.

Below is a close up of one of the circles.

The next two blankets are American flags. The only difference is that one has 46 stars and uses the double crochet shell pattern on the stripes. The other has 50 stars and is a straight double crochet across the entire stripe.

My only worry about the 50 star pattern is that you can tell the star field is too big since I had to tweak the original pattern for the 46 star to try to get all 50 in the field. But then I didn't make the stripes big enough. I'm wondering if I should try to sell the 50 for that reason or not.

46 Star...................................................................................50 Star


  1. Those are awesome! Love the swirly one - very pretty!

  2. Stephanie, those are gorgeous! Great job.

  3. Thanks! So what do you guys think about posting the 50 star afghan on the site even though the star field is a bit big?

  4. I think if you put up an extra photo with the blanket all spread out, it would be okay. I would still use the picture you posted here as your first one, though, because it's beautiful.

  5. I agree. All three are beautiful.
