WIP (Work in Progress) Wednesday 06 April '11

Currently, I have a few projects taking a siesta and I am working on some large granny squares for an afghan. These squares are 12 rounds and only 2 colors per square. The colors I am using are gold and purple with the last round in white. This afghan is going to a Minnesota Vikings fan, hence my choice of colors.

I think the mascot looks like Hulk Hogan.

Anyway, I'm not sure how I'm going to lay these out yet and I may make more than one size. I'll just have to see how it progresses and what my preference is as I merrily hook along.

Here's some info for stash builders. My son and I were at Michaels yesterday so I could get another pound of purple and gold for this project. I printed out a 40% off coupon for each of us to buy one. To my stash building delight, Michaels is having a sale on Sugar and Cream yarn for $1!  I was a bad girl and bought 29 of them.  Eeek, don't let dh know! :-)  Look at the new additions to my stash (BAD GIRL Sharon Marie):

I can see a lot of dishcloths in my future. I tried to stack the yarn in a pyramid shape but it kept falling over so I said the heck with it and took the picture. Anyway, before I started rambling on about football and yarn, I was planning to show some squares. I have 5 of the purple done and with 1 exception the ends are woven in and I have 1 gold square in the works. Here they are:

I normally link my Wednesday wip post to Everyday Crochet but the linky thingamabob isn't there today. Maybe it will be up later on today.

Nice sunny day here today and I hope y'all are having the same. Hugs...
