In the studio - organic cottons

In the studio - "red" afghan

I've taken a lot of time for this because trying to select colors that will play well with the red and others is challenging.

In the studio - huge crochet

Afghan, mixed fibers - no synthetics; single crochet, size 5mm aluminum hook, estimated finished size: 6 ft x 8 ft

This is an attempt to get at that lolapalooza effect of the huge folk art afghan.  I have a monster size cone of red hemp and wool, so that ia every other row. All other rows will be any color I intuitively  want at the moment.  I have two large bags of possible ones.

It strongly reminds me of rag rugs.
