I haven't been much in the mood for crafting this week. I had a wisdom tooth pulled on Wednesday (it was a production, but not as bad as I thought it would be) and I've had a headache off and on since Tuesday night. I'm taking sudafed and Tylenol (or the generic equivalent), plus I'm already on antibiotics from the tooth. I bought myself some saline solution, too. Hopefully, that will do the trick. Or else I'll talk to the doctor I work for and see if she has any other ideas.
Anyway, on to the fun stuff. This afghan is a 'work in progress.' I actually photographed it upside down...I'm currently crocheting the rust colored stripe. The multi-color is "El Paso" by Jiffy. I'm just picking out other solid Jiffy yarns for the alternating stripes that I think match. This is for my oldest son, Michael, for when he gets his new home. He and his dad have been working on that. Michael will live in the house, which will be a small cottage, for two or three years until Mike and I are ready to retire, then we'll move in and he'll get another home. His 'rent' will be the monthly bills. So this will be my housewarming gift, LOL!
It's a very easy pattern. The rows are based on an even number of stitches, and alternate like this: one row is a single crochet, two chain repeat. The other row is double crochets in all the two chain repeats of the previous row. It's going together surprisingly fast!
