It's finally done!

Hey guys-!
In addition to a lot of other less interesting projects, vests, scarfs, etc. I finally finished the bird afghan. It's based/inspired by and I LOVED this project! The ground is Wool-Ease (not my favorite yarn, but not too bad when you need LOTS if it!) The birds are whatever scraps I could find, with a few acrylics and blends (purchased) thrown in.

Bradley (aka KSMARGUY) was (as usual) WONDERFULLY supportive of this endevour, running to Michael's every few days to use coupons to keep up the yarn supply... So big kudos to the husband!

We're starting a new joint venture tonight.... A free-form jungle animals afghan... We'll keep you updated.

Peace and blessings to all!

Wow! That's really out of this world! What an amazing piece of artistry! Really stunning and "brand new". Well done. Can't wait to see the joint venture. Peace and blessings to you!

This is just wonderful. I especially like the owl.

That is so cool!! I was going to ask if it was crochet or knit, but I see now that it's crochet. I love this blanket!! I can't wait to see your next piece of art!

A most intriguing bit of artistry. Are the birds a solid bit of crochet or are they appliqued on top of blocks? I guess I should examine the picture carefully. Looking forward to seeing the next one. [edit] Now I get it. Most definitely interesting. Reminds me of tapestry weaving where you do the main pieces and then fill in the background. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Really Stunning !

Congratulations on this Eric, and on your's and Brad's courage to try a collaborative project. Will this test the relationship like wallpapering is said to? :-) It was great to spend time with you guys. I'm sorry that you're so far away. hugs! - Phil

OMG! That is so awesome!

Fabulous! It's difficult to choose a favourite of the birds, but I think I like the one in the upper left corner best.

What a beautiful project and it has such humor and beauty. I love the duck in the lower left. I can't wait to see the next one. How long did this take to do ?

I have been away from this site for a little while. What a way to be greeted! Eric...AWESOME! You have a pair of great hands there! I am excited already over what you will show us next. Be good.

How much fun! I love this. I used to crochet, and your afghan has me thinking it might be time to try my hands at it again. Thanks so much for posting this. I'm inspired!

Think less, enjoy it more.
