Rainbow of Afghans

 I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas.  Ours was filled with family, laughs, good food, and a much needed break.  Since it is after Christmas, I will be able to share the rest of the gifts that I made for my family.

I just love this Limelight color.  Reminds me of a great big bowl of limes.  Bright and refreshing!

This one is Watermelon. Great hot pink! The picture fails to do it any justice.

And lastly a Sunshine Pineapple afghan. It is done with the same booklet as the others, but a slightly different pattern.   One of my nieces received the Mango Orange afghan.  She told me numerous times how much she needed it.  

Here is my homemade rainbow. Isn't so pretty?  I have never finished two afghans in a year let alone 6 counting the Red, White, and Blue Bavarian afghan.  And I am working on Number 7 - and already half finished.  (Which is now my favorite and very scrappy)  All of the afghans except the purple were made with Caron Simply Soft yarn.  I just love the colors and the name of the yarn says it all.  It is nice and soft.  A great kid cuddling afghan.

I am quite excited to have made a completely homemade Christmas. We only bought materials for the gifts that we gave this year. I can't wait to show you what my hubby and I made for the guys.
See you soon!
