But as I was making those squares I was inspired to make an afghan for my niece, and I had the perfect yarn for that. A month before I was visiting a thrift store in Texas, and I found 10 skeins of Caron Dazzle aire yarn from the 80's! There were about 6 skeins of Peach and 4 of variegated Sherbert. It was gorgeous! And the price was a steal too, a buck ($1) a piece. I nabbed all they had, even thought I wasn't sure at the time what I was going to do with it.
Finally I decided on an afghan for my Alien (my niece and goddaughter). Thankfully it didn't take as long as I thought it was going to. Only about 3 and half months, I worked on it in between classes, and other projects and finished it late November. I probably would have finished it much quickly had I worked on it constantly. It turned out to be 53'x53' which is a good size for a three year old I think. And though she'll eventually grow out of it she will still be able to use it as a throw blanket.
I am SUPER proud of it for sure though, so here ya go, a nice little photo.
