Hearts Aplenty or Cuddly Valentine

I made this afghan for my friend Brenda's daughter.

This afghan is in a few books. Named 'Cuddly Valentine'
it appears in 'A year of Afghans book 5'
With the name 'Hearts Aplenty' I think its in quite a few books,
The big book of Crochet and The Best loved Afghans.

Quick to crochet it took me 3 nights after work. This is the
second one of these afghans I've made. The first was for
my cousins 30th wedding anniversary which is Valentines day.
I made hers in the color Claret and it's in my photo album.

Another Scrap Afghan

Yes another scrap afghan. I can't stop making these.
They are so much fun. This one I used two strands of
different colors of scraps to create. I usually use
one strand of scrap colors and one solid. I like the
look of this though. They are nice and toasty warm.
Great for camping. The last one I made I'm sending to
my cousins daughter who started camping in a tent trailer.

Heart scarf

Last week I was helping a friend with this afghan
pattern and stopped after one strip. It made a nice
heart scarf.

different names...(crosshatch, crazy or diagonal stitch)

Here is the link to the pattern that I used:

Happy New Year!!!! 2010

I had a bunch of half used skeins of yarn and nothing to
do on New Years Day so I started this large granny square afghan.
Completed it last night and posted it today.
I forgot how much fun a large granny is to create.
