Thanks for all the sweet compliments!
So, I don't really know what I was thinking when I started that afghan...I'm making it for my parents, who will more than likely let the dogs sleep on it (which doesn't bother me, I love dogs!) but I thought something acrylic would be the most practical. Well, I had 2 pretty balls of yarn, the blue in the picture, and a variagated blue and white, both brand new, but from a thrift store. I don't know why I thought 2 balls was going to be enough. I went to AC Moore yesterday to see if I could find something to match, and nothing--absolutely nothing did! So I ended up buying some navy and burgundy Red Heart Soft...and started all over! To make matters worse, the pattern called for size 6 needles, and somehow I was using 9's. I guess my head really wasn't on tightly enough when I started! I'll post more pictures when I have a little more to show for it!
Here's the pattern : http://www.poly-fil.com/pdffiles/rippleafhgan.pdf
Here's another shot at posting a picture!
