Little Barb's Swedish Weaving Afghan

This is the afghan I made for my friend, little Barb.  We call her "little" because she was part of a group of 3 ladies named Barb and she was the smallest one.  Somehow, the nickname stuck and it's hard to call her anything but that when we speak of her.

The colors don't show as clearly as I'd like but the fabric is ecru and the yarns used are peach, salmon and light green.  I used them all in the fringe and it did take some time but I think it was worth it.

Dian's Swedish Weaving Afghan

This is Dian's work in progress.  I'll post a photo of her finished afghan but it's nice to see how someone else has chosen to do her design.  If you're not a Swedish weaver, you can't appreciate the time and effort it takes to complete a project like this but we SW do know.  

Dian said this is being made as a gift so I hope the lucky recipient knows how much time and thought went into it.
