Below are Week 1’s Progress pictures… What do you think??  Don’t worry,,, It isn’t a Granny Square Afghan,,, But it does have quite a few of them in the design… In a couple of weeks… You will see how this afghan design begins to unfold… I think you will be surprised and very happy with what we will be doing!!

Winter CAL Week 1 Impeccable
     This week 1 progress picture of my first afghan is a Circle in Square using the traditional color changing technique.  I used Loops and Threads Impeccable Yarn.  It is soft  and  nice to work with and I loved the color results!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter CAL Week 1 Unforgettable

For the Second afghan, I used Red Heart Unforgettable in Polo,,,  It is a self-striping yarn and is very soft!  Less weaving in the ends and it has a more gradual color change… I love this one too!!
