Progress on Granny

Here's some progress on my Granny Afghan. I've thrown four more colors - nine colors in total now. And I was hesitant about using too girly of a bunch of colors, but thought better to make some girly than something drab. So, here are the new colors being slowly worked in. The dark violet is a bit dark in the picture, but it's much more vibrant in person. And, after getting the opinion of my crochet class last night, they convinced me to leave it in. I'm going to keep it completely random after thinking about doing some pattern, or starting with some spectrum effect. For my first crocheted afghan, I'm going to keep it simple - at least simple in the planning.

Hope you like the colors. And I've downshifted from the king-size plan, to a throw. Not surprising. I calculated I would need about 650 squares, so I thought better not. I don't want to get sick of it before I'm using it.

The ongoing saga of the Swing Jacket sleeves - progress is slow. I do a couple rows a night, doing both sleeves at once. I won't be getting anywhere fast at that rate, so I'm going to try to pick up the pace soon. Ah well... what's the rush?

I love the colors! Reminds me of an afgan Garnet Hill is selling. Can't wait to see it finished.
