Love the first afghan. I think it would look really striking in blues and yellows.


I really like the first, square afghan and the colours of blue and yellow would work great. I love blue and yellow together.


Unanimous so far - I think #1 in blues and yellows would be seriously striking! That really is a humdinger of a pattern :)


Yep. The first one. It would be more fun to crochet. You might get bored with the second one...being all one color.


Ooh, the first one definitely.

By the way, can you tell me where I can get my hands on that first pattern?


I had a sneaking suspicion almost everyone would go with #1. It's definitely eye-catching...probably why it's my fav!

Here's the info: Leisure Arts Leaflet #2159, "Scrap Yarn Afghans, Book Two." There are 7 designs included. The only problem is that is OLD, folks. I think I bought it when Dylan was a baby and that was 11 years ago. However, it's worth keeping in mind while cruising eBay...just for that pattern alone! :)


Yet another vote for the first one. It's really beautiful and I think the blue and yellow would look great in it.


The first -- "favorite afghan pattern of all time." It's not hard to figure out why you feel that way!


Maybe you don't need it, but here's another vote for #1. I think you can do so much more with it colorwise than the table topper.


oh what the hell, i feel sorry for afghan number 2 so i vote for 2. um, not really, i like number 1 better but number 2 did perk up a bit...

Lisa in Oregon

#1....very dramatic! :) L


Yep - I definitely saw #2 perk up a bit, just being mentioned. :::wink::: But obviously everyone is taken in by the drama of #1!

Thanks for the continuing votes! It helps to have others think I'm on the right track too. :)


Oooh! I love the first afghan. Although I'm sure the lace would be gorgeous, I'm thinking the first fits into the SW a bit better... But then again, you *live* in the SW, and I don't. I'm not helping much, am I? Regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing your progress!


Whatever you make will be gorgeous,especially in yellows and blues.
I'm glad that you and your mother are forging a better relationship.


You might want to consider your Mom's furnishings, not just the wall colors. If she has vivid floral patterned upholstery, pattern #1 might be lost (or worse yet, get into terrible visual fights). If her furniture is mostly wood and solid colors, then pattern #2 in a solid color would tend to get lost. They're both beautiful, and, overall, I agree with the crowd that #1 is special.


Love #1. With the suggested blues and yellows, it ought to look fabulous!


I love the first afghan. :)


The first afghan is my vote -- absolutely gorgeous!!!!


is it too late to vote? number 1 for my vote!


can't wait for the mesh poncho pattern
i think it is probably what the kids are wearing today and my granddaughter is dying to have one.
