New WIP--Lace and Bobbles Afghan

Many months ago I fell in love with the pattern for the Lace and Bobbles afghan pattern.

I found it in a used leaflet on the Amazon site and bought it right away.

 I was so anxious to get the pattern but finally today I started to make it.  I'm not using as many colors as the pattern calls for and my color scheme is more neutral with stash yarn in off-white, khaki, tans and a tweed-like off white.  The idea is to use up what is in my stash because one of the spare bedrooms is unusable because of stacks of yarn and patterns. A large part of the problem is that I got carried away when novelty yarns went on deep-clearance  and they're just not going away oh, and other yarn is stockpiled too.  I really need to do something with the fun fur and eyelash yarn I have but not in this project--maybe the next???

Anyway, here's what I've done so far.  I really shouldn't be posting about this in case this becomes a ufo in the closet but what the heck, here it is:
