Introduction: My New Favorite Afghan!

I took a Lion Brand Pattern for the Lion Brand Wool-Ease/Vanna's Choice Pop Art Afghan and modified it a bit, after not liking the look of my stripes! I added some flowers from Lion's Crochet Motif library, and made a floral creation for my friend Jennifer.

Knowing I have issues with "finishing" projects - such as seaming and the like, I should have known that having to sew on zig-zags and circles would be a challenge. Once I gave up on those, I loved placing the center of the flowers down - Jen's 9 month old son will have a holiday with those!

I had a hard time finding Wool-Ease in Avocado, so I substituted Vanna's Choice for the background, and I think I made a good choice. It is warm, comfortable and so far has held up great.

I'd love to see more Tunisian patterns on the Lion Brand site!

It's nice when you are able to adapt an existing pattern and make it your own. Well done!
