The Brazilian



I'm calling this the Brazilian because it reminds me
of the colors from that country. I started it in July
and finished it today...I've been busy with learning
how to knit socks.

It was very easy to do...I bought a bunch of the bright Red heart

yarn, made a chain of about 157 and single crocheted the

entire blanket. Changed colors when I felt like it.

I love your new afghan! The bright colors look great with it, and the pattern just makes it look so classy. You did another amazing job on this one!

Dynamite! I love bright colors and yours made me SMILE!
Also making socks using the 5 dp needle Lion Brand pattern. Those darn needles keep these old fingers busy. Years ago I made argyles for my Dad, so these are my frist socks in a dog's agir

I didn't even know a Brazilian was a hair removal treatment until I looked it up...I laughed so hard...I've never had a problem with too much hair..

I'm only using 4 dpns to knit my socks. 3 for the pattern and 1 to take off the stitches. It so different than crocheting but it's fun for a change.

You have inspired me to make my own Brazilian blanket. I love the contrast between the brights and the darks. :)

That is beautiful. I didn't think you meant the hair removal, but wasn't sure ;)
Wow, all SC.
I'm using brights for my Babette inspired but had to hold off as I can't do too many brights but I love your afghan anyway. You did great.
