Update on My Magic Ball Afghan

This magic ball afghan is my relaxation.  I work on it in the evenings while dh watches television.  I think this afghan will fit a queen-size bed when it is finished or an over-sized double/full size bed.  I love how these look and I like the idea that I can use up remnants of yarn left over from other projects.  Roughly, I have crocheted it to 52".  I'm not sure how big I'm going to make it until I get it a tad bit bigger and lay it on the bed I'm making it for.  I'm thinking about using it for a regular blanket.  What do you think??? Do people use afghans for blankets?  The stitches in this one are close so there aren't any gaping holes to let the cold air in.  My chis, Opi and Nellie Belle love when I work on this and Opi is curled up next to me and Nellie B. is on my lap.  I've rambled on here long enough.  Thanks for visiting...

  1. I love projects that use up scrap yarn; I've always got way too much of it laying around.

    Are you using two strands, one of them black and another of whatever you grab?

  2. I am using 2 strands--1 black and 1 whatever. I've taken my odd and end balls and wound them up with my yarn winder. Works out pretty good.

  3. Oh wow Sharon that is just beautiful, I love the colors, I havent really crocheted enough to have alot of scrap but I'm definately gonna work me one of those when I do have a good supply, very beautiful and yes I have used afghans as blankets so I think you should and get some enjoyment out of your hard work, have a nice day :o)

  4. Thanks Lynn! This is gonna go on the bed in the guestroom, or maybe my bed :).
