I wasn't going to do this, until I figured out that I could circumvent my New Year's resolution by making this for charity...

I already went wild and crazy and ordered the yarn. Since Im giving this away, I decided on a color scheme that Id love to work on, but that wont work in the house (to resist temptation to keep it):

Tibetan Red (main), Antique, Gypsy Gold, Cadet, and Stone Brown.

I decided to go with the CAL, as Im already knitting several things

This is the link, in case you all are interested:

I still haven't decided about the colors but I did the first clue and I think I'll be making the decision soon. Are you doing the Crochet and the Knit clues or just one? I am actually thinking of doing both.

I'm only doing the CAL, as I already have other knitting projects going on. Besides, I was afraid a knitted afghan would take me ages!

I did clue one and I am working on clue two. My clue two is too small and I am working on getting the gauge to see what size hook I need to go up to. I have printed out the Knitting clues but have not worked on them yet.

Sadly, my final motifs for Clue #2 are a bit...wrinkly...

Pam,
You did a beautiful job on clue 3. I look at the charts because the written instuctions do not make much sense at times. I am still working on clue 2. I haven't mesaured yet to see if it is right. I actually have to go back and count to besure.
I probably will not get clue three done this week.

I have a friend who's saving them to do later, too!
