2 Crocheted afghans completed.

Rainbow squares afghan is done first in the original traditional black border, and next in a color that more closely resembles Ravens Purple, since I live in Ravens territory of Baltimore. The black one is going as a surprise birthday gift to a friend who LOVES that style of afghan. Very easy to crochet. I avoided having loads of little ends to tuck in by slip stitching the working flower to the rest of the afghan as I worked it, instead of sewing each point according to directions. (My way was easier.) I like both afghans but I am more drawn to the black bordered one.

I would treasure either one of those afghans----But I am very partial to the purple background. The way you arranged the colors make these very happy ----- I could use one of them for a nap-time right now!

I am always in awe of anyone who completes a pieced project. I have problems when it's TWO pieces...

Beautiful afghans, the black border makes the colours zing.

Beautiful afghans you have made. This is a good project to make if you have extra yarn lying around.

Very nice, Jim. The purple is nice...I could see that background against a lot of shades of red and orange. But that black border really does "zing". -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

They are awesome, my favorite kind of afghan, and I hope to make one like it on the loom someday!
