Mini Rings of Change

The CAL goal for this week was rounds 38 - 40 and they pretty much hopped right off my hook!


Black, Hot Red, and then another row of GlowWorm, which loks very washed out in the picture.

Then, we were given permission by the CAL host to finish if we wanted because there were only two more rounds - so I thought why not?  And happily stitched round 41.

Then I started round 42 and my brain went sideways, because it wasn't working, for the first time a row wasn't working!

Turns out there was an error in the pattern, corrected in January but I printed mine in December.  I started to frog it out, back to the beginning of round 40, but then I thought, you know - I didn't like the way round 42 looked on this, when I was trying to figure out the issue I looked at bunches of Ravelry pics, and less than 1/3 of them did round 42 (prolly 'cause of the error) and I like this the way it is.  I wanted to finish up with Candy Pink all along.

So - it's done.  I love it and it's done!



Round 41, in bright Candy Pink, and a mini-afghan that's about 4 feet across.  I have no idea what to do with it but I love it!

I love it so much I bought the full size version:




It's possible I will never finish it, but I bought it!  I'm torn between doing it in one solid color, or doing it like this:


Only with blues, cream, and sand so it will look good in my ocean-themed living room. (The green one is stitched by babyme29, on Ravelry)

I almost want to stitch it twice!  But only almost.

There's going to be a new CAL with this pattern:


I'm leaning toward earth tones and neutrals for this one.  And already tempted to buy the big version, too! :D

Off to weave in the last of my ends on the Mini-Rings!  Only a few left, yay!

  6. Yay! It's so beautiful, Tama :-) Glad you made it work, pattern mistakes and all. Congratulations on finishing it. I want to get the full version, too, but I think mine would be all one color. I love the idea of seeing yours in blues.

  7. Yay, it looks spectacular! I see it more as a super fun rug than an afghan but that full-sized one is definitely for a bed. Even the one color looks amazing though I would imagine I would hate whatever color I chose by the time that giant thing was done. :D

  8. Congratulations for being the first one to get to the finish post! it's beautiful I love your colours, I discovered the mistake myself too and there's no way I'm frogging all that work, I will see if I can adapt the last two rounds to fit. I love it too and I have the full version, I fancy making it in cotton to put on my table so I'm saving it for Summer to do as a Summer project. Have a great weekend. :)
