I took a break from the afghan for a couple of hours. Made this hat. I'm undecided about this hat. It's warm on the head, but I don't know if it's really cute. It did give me some ideas for future hats............... I was gonna have a red hat, all ready for the ladies with the purple dresses, you know............. LMHO I guess it's back to the drawing board.

Finished the big, beautiful granny.

I haven't been this happy with a completed project in a good long while. This great big granny is, to me, beautiful. I love the colors, and I think the pattern came out nice. I like the way the edge works on it as well. I think this will be out on display, in use, in my living room for a very long time.

I love the Caron Simply Soft yarn with which I made it. Such beautiful, bright colors. Yes, it's a little splitty to work with, and you do have to occasionally adjust if your hook doesn't grab it just right, but the finished project is so soft and silky, it's totally worth it. In fact, I am using this same yarn for my current project, another round rippled afghan. I tend to call these things stars, though they really aren't. They look sort of star-like to me.

Y'all have a wonderful day, with much happy hooking going on!
