Project Linus.  Love the yellow & orange colors that
remind me of summer!  Just in time too!  Excited to 
start my next afghan...oh what will I do???

Emily's Afghan & Earthquake

Large Solid Granny Square
Left over yarn for another project 
Wow! Finally done!  I think it turned out real nice
and Emily's happy.  It measures right about 60"
square.  I used about 7 skeins of red heart and yes I 
over bought.  A lot!  I'm still learning how to gauge
how much to buy.  I started with 13 skeins making
sure my dye lots matched knowing this is important
for the project to look good.  I'll post a pic to show 
how much is left over.  I'm very surprised.

Here's what I started with:  2 skeins 16 oz. each 
& 9 skeins of 7 oz. each.

Looks like I'll be starting my first Project Linus 
blanket.  I'm thinking of a ripple...yes?

Also on another note...Yes we felt the


Holy Smokes what a feeling!  I'm sitting in my 
big comfy chair crocheting and then everything
starts moving.  It was the most bizarre feeling.
Almost made me feel motion sickness.  So 
where and what???   It was 20 miles south of the 
U.S. border in Baja Mexico and originally called a
6.9 on the richter scale but upgraded to a 7.2 ~ dang!
