This is what the afghan looks like tonight....after spending this evening plus a bit of time at work today crocheting on it. It's coming along nicely, I think. My model, holding the afghan up, was only mildly reluctant to accept the job. Thus, her half-hearted pose with it. LOL I'm using Red Heart yarn in burgundy, navy, heather gray and white. And my "2nd new" J hook that's so pretty.
