This is an afghan I finished early for hubbys birthday which is in November. It is 75 by 50 inches in size. It looks green, instead of a mild varigaated grey heather tone. It was 11:30 p.m. and darker in room then normal, so hard to tell its true color. I included a pic of the book I got the pattern from. I tend to knit LARGE and purposely made the afghan longer so it would flow over hubbys feet and up under his neck when He needed a cover. It was nice and warm for me while I worked on it. It is made up of Red Heart super saver yarn and took 7 skeins of varigated yarn. He likes it and I hope you will also.

Happy way too early birthday to a wonderful husband.

thanks so much for the reply. It seemed to take forever, It actually was done over a time span of 4 weeks, more or less. Glad you liked it. 148 stitches per row and 12 rows to a pattern, with tons of repeats. I wish the gray color had shown up better.

Hugs to you and yours.

What an achievement! Well done you. It looks lovely and I'm sure the colour is really special, shame our cameras don't show the true colours sometimes.

Early happy birthday to your lovely one :)

I think the color showed up really well. And it only took you 4 weeks? It seems to take me forever even on a small piece. You really made a beautiful piece.

I'm impressed! I couldn't finish that in four months, never mind 4 weeks! Beautiful job. Lucky hubby to have a wife who would give such a gift of self, and lucky you to have a hubby who appreciates it.

Am I correct in guessing the book is where you found this pattern? If so I have to find that book, unless you're selling it.
