Summertime, summertime, sum-sum-summertime

And I can feel the heat.  Not complaining, though, since I can well-remember looking forward to this when temps hit below freezing and an early morning shift meant scraping my windshield and possibly digging out my car.

So, what am I working on?  An afghan.  A nice, cozy, warm afghan.  With no air conditioner in place yet.  I had started it several weeks ago...February?  March?  Then my interest kinda fizzled, and I couldn't think of anything I really wanted to work on.  This past week, I finally picked it up again, figuring I would do a nice square afghan, 9 12" squares...then a border.  I finished assembling it this morning, then looked at the yarn I have left, and *think* I can do 3 rows of 4 squares before a simple border.  I hope so, at least until I get a thin border of cream colour done, the rest I can do white.

I chose cream and white, a simple monochromatic afghan, using my Autumn Warmth square.
The picture, to be brutally honest, stinks, but it gives you an idea.  I plan on posting this for sale in my Etsy shop when it is finished, so hope I can manage to get much better pictures of it!
