And this is my first strip of a lapghan. I joined The Drum Afghan CAL. Everyone seems to just be making seven or eight blocks of color... Really, more would make it seem too much. At least for me, anyway. I am making this into a lapghan to send to Pine Ridge.... I need to go get some off-white yarn to edge it with. I am almost done with a second strip, already. The hard part is trying to make the colors "go"; it's almost impossible, really. I have just been trying to make them kind of match with the last color or two.
