It's a challenge to keep up but I never would have finished an afghan so quickly on my own. Seeing the end in sight and digging everyone's different takes on color.

Carolyn, I have a question... I wonder if it's ok for me to translate your afghan pattern to swedish for all swedish crocheter who doesn't know the english crochet terms.. Cuz I really enjoy this CAL and I'm sure there will be other sweds who will do the same..

Lina, thanks for your offer to translate into Swedish. I'd love for you to do this if you wish, with credit. That would be wonderful!

Just wanted to express my appreciation for your sharing this wonderful afghan design. I never finish afghans because of "same block" fatigue. These different and interesting blocks are keeping me trying to keep up with you!
