This made me want to make one for my own bed even more. So, I started one. I got the originial idea for a bed sized afghan from The Purl Bee. So I convinced the hubby that I needed yarn to make one for us in some gorgeous colors. (We are finally decorating our bedroom and I want it to be bright and cheery.) He agreed and off we went to Hobby Lobby.
Pattern :: Ravelry
Yarn : Hobby Lobby I love this Yarn! (White//Yellow//Turquoise//Limelight//Greybeard//Orange//Peacock//Rouge//Grape//Navy)
Hook : 10mm
Here's all the colors (minus the white) in their basket.
This project works up fast. So far I have already gotten three color changes on.
But thats not to say I wont break it out at a later date and add the rest of the rounds.
I really love how the colors turned out. Even though the rouge and orange are hard to distinguish between, Ive tried to Photoshop them a little to make them look more like the actual colors without messing up the other colours. The blues look a little similar now however.
Here's a picture on my In-laws bed (hope they don't mind!) They have the best lighting in their room. They have whats considered a "California" Queen. Our bed is slightly smaller so I think it will work quite nicely.
Okay, so the damage.
