I picked a color that would blend in with the color palette I have selected for the room, I didn't particulary want the afghan to stand out, but rather to blend in and just add textural interest. I bought all of the yarn at an after Christmas sale at Michael's. I picked a very simple and mindless pattern that keeps my hands busy, but lets my mind free to chat, daydream, talk on the telephone, or listen to television or music...very therapeutic and relaxing. Crocheting is so much fun and easy to do, if you haven't tried it I highly recommend doing so ~ the results are quite amazing.
I still have quite a bit to do, but it really doesn't take very long. I love the lace-like appearance of crochet. What do you think...c'est jolie, non?
