Panda Blanket

Even though I ranted about the Marshall Amp blanket (the cross-stitch part), I am going to work another cross-stitch blanket. I saw a book at Herrschners with panda bears and it was crochet. I simply had to get it. 🙂

It’s called Cross-Stitch Crochet Afghans 2008 National Afghan Contest Winners. I had been happily working away on it when I got flooded with a few other projects, so it’s setting aside for the time being, but I will get back to it because, well, it’s pandas!

I’ve taken photos of my progress. I’m really enjoying this blanket although my fingers itch to use my crochet hook every once in a while. 🙂 I’m “coloring in” the bottom panda (chart B) and then I’ll be able to finish the top panda with chart C and whatever is left with chart D (bottom right of the blanket).

Well, I found how to make mosaics and decided to show off the blanket this way.

The afghan measures 38″ x 50″. I had fun making it, but was really wanting to be done when there was only 5 more rounds left to do.

So, here is the panda afghan. All mine. 🙂
