Faye's New Swedish Weaving Afghan

Faye just finished this one for her grandson and it's beautiful. The colors are very similar to one I did a while back but Faye used a different shade of brown which gives it a whole new effect. I especially like the very last row where she made half sized diamonds and I'll use that on one of my own. It's fun learning from each other.

Her fabric was ecru and she used 2 blues (?) and a variegated blue with browns, and then a solid brown for yarns.

Donna hadn't quite finished the afghan she's working on but I'll take pictures of it in the spring. It's a gorgeous lilac fabric done completely with a variegated lilacs/blues/purples/pinks yarn.

Marilee's Swedish Weaving Afghan

I finally finished Marilee's afghan and it was done in record time. It usually takes me a couple of months to finish one but I did this in about a month because I've been stuck in the house. Better to Swedish weave than to vegetate in front of the T.V.

The pattern is Jewel from the Diamond book and I used 3 shades of green plus a lovely rouge on ecru fabric.
