Finished Red Heart Sampler Afghan

Hello friends, and family,

It has been awhile since I posted here, and I see some of you have continued to come visit me in hopes that I have added something new, or designed something new. 

I have been working absolutely month's on this afghan.  12 squares and each one of them are
a different technique other than the usual knit and purl stitches, and not all the same size which poses a problem setting them together. 

School summer vacation for our grandchildren took out 2 month's of that time.  Just can't concentrate with  an 11, and 8 year old in the house, and it was so hot they couldn't be outside long, and most of the time when they could it was late in the evening after the sun went down; by then their parents were home from working.

So, once school got back in session I worked like a mad woman trying to catch up, and get the Afghan squares made, and set together. 

Now I am in the process of making my DGS an Iron Man hat, as requested by him.  I found a real neat pattern, but for some reason the directions are not working out for me, and I am not new to making hats, both crochet and knit, but do like to go by a pattern.   Oh well, I'll look for just a simple plain hat for the back ground and see if this mask will work out right.  I may even give the directions a second try to see if I missed something.  I sure like this hat though.




Thank you for stopping in, and visiting me.

Afghan looks beautiful. Joining looks pretty.

Thank you Shami, One of the joins doesn't look even, but it is the square has a blue on the last couple rounds which throws the look off. But, I love it anyway. :)
