A few of you have requested to see a photo of the finished afghan. . . . . the one I switched from primarily black to dominate cream coloring. It turned out beautiful using Vanna's Choice that I picked up at Michael's. It's throw size. . . . .just perfect for little 'ole me when chilly nights arrive (if they ever do).
There isn't a pattern for the color scheme but you can see I simply alternated two blocks, swapping the cream and green with each other in the centers but then keeping the black and gold consistent in all of the blocks. Instructions for granny squares can be found for free on the internet.
