Pinterest Inspiration: Rainbow Waves Afghan

Good morning!

I thought I'd share another Pinterest Inspiration project with you today!

A while ago I came across this lovely pin:

I love the serenity and color of this graphic...so pretty!

(ETA: Thank you to Jeannette​ for directing me to the proper link for the image!  You can find the original source HERE.)

I knew immediately that I wanted to try making an afghan that had the same look to it.

And here's my take:

Pinterest Inspiration: End of Winter Cowl

A couple of weeks ago I saw this pretty cowl image floating around Pinterest.

When I looked it up I found out that ChiWei, the designer - from One Dog Woof, was hosting a Crochet-Along, with the End of Winter pattern as the project!  

I decided to join in...and I'm so glad I did!

I loved CheWei's beautiful bright pink...but I wanted to use some yarn that I'd had in my stash for a long time, instead.  I had this pretty, super-soft Bernat Premium taupe colored yarn...I'd gotten it on clearance, so I'm not sure they even make this anymore!

What's New: Crochet Bunnies (and a pig and duck, too!)

Thought I'd share a couple of pics of my latest creations!

Pinterest Inspiration: Pastel Granny Afghan

Hi!

I thought I'd start sharing some of my Pinterest inspired projects with all of you!  

I LOVE this gorgeous granny square afghan, made by the incredibly talented Petite Pimprenelle.  Aren't the colors so pretty and fresh?  'Tart'...just like she describes! Drool!  So using this pin as my inspiration I decided to make my own version!

What's New: Lace Baby Blanket

I've been spending a lot of time during my recovery working on projects that have been neglected for a while!  (I'm embarrassed to admit that among the projects I've been working on I have a few afghans/blankets that have been sitting for quite awhile!)
