Color Knitting - Afghan

 Knitting, gardening, cooking, crafting, sewing are all some of my favorite ways to decompress.  However, I must admit that I have a particular soft spot for knitting.  Why?  it's because it's portable and can be done anywhere:  watching TV, waiting in the doctor's office, watching a football game, and listening to your child's band concert to name a few. (My kids just roll their eyes when they see me walk in with my knitting).  

Anyway, my local yarn shop, Knitting Temptations has such a wonderful community feel and everyone who works there LOVES yarn and fiber arts!  One of their instructors is Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter.  Michelle has a wonderful eye for creating beautiful patterns that are wonderfully simple.  I recently took a class learning different color working techniques. The final project is an afghan.  Take a look!

This is going to be a gift for my parents.  I hope they like it!
