Wow! The response to my Rainbow Twist and Turn Bargello Afghan has been phenomenal - 1300 views of the pattern, 280 favourites on Ravelry and two projects started already :D
Mine is all safely washed and dried and photographed and rolled up in plastic, ready for its next outing at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. I entered the Show for the first time this year, in 3 categories:
1. Adult Accessories - I'm going to submit a Road Trip Scarf to this category;
2. Soft Toys - A candy hippo, my favourite; and
3. Creative Crochet (Exhibitor's Own Design) - the Bargello Afghan.
Unfortunately I couldn't enter the afghan into the afghan category as that requires the blankets to be made from wool or wool blend, not 100% acrylic :( Oh well, now I know for next time!
There'll be a brand new afghan design coming soon - here is a sneak peek for you!
I've been stuck at home with terrible fatigue, bored off my nut for the last few days. I have been slowly getting through some scarves, and trying to clear my WIP pile so I can start new projects with a clear conscience. Here are three more scarves, in some different yarn to my usual Moda Vera Fayette!

As I am writing this, I have received some very bad news. Anne's grandfather passed away today at the grand age of 101. As you all know, Anne was very close to her grandfather, and he used the blanket that she made for him every day.
Please send her lots of love and hugs and support in this difficult time.
