The newest update on the Hawkeye afghan!

I apologize for the fuzziness of the picture but we spent alllllll day outside in the heat and I don't know if I could hold up my arms long enough to take the picture and NOT have them shake.

The large squares still need a few more rows on them but I wanted to see how they looked like this before I did those. I think I'm going to have to work them in but will still wait until I finish a medium square. Not sure how I like the small bullseye and may just do them as a ball of color. Not sure yet.

And guys. GUYS. You will not believe what was on my Facebook after I posted the pictures there.

My sister posted:

You ruined your birthday gift! I just started a Captain America blanket for you... I guess I'll just donate it now for some lucky kid

My response was:

No! You wouldn't dare! This blanket is part of our geekery items and will be sold (probably to someone on my blog) after I show it to Mr. Matt Fraction! I get the Cap blanket. *grabby hands*

Thank you! I was SO EXCITED to find just the right shades to match the Fraction comic bullseyes! The purples were the first skeins I found when I walked in and I walked back out with two bags of purple and gray yarn and a huge smile on my face!

I have a ridiculously talented family when it comes to crafts! Thankfully, they've accepted this Marvel fannishness of mine much better than some of my other fandom loves so are willing to feed it with such wonderful pretties!

I think the small two-color bulls-eye looks cooler than the one-color, IMO, and all the bulls-eyes being different so far makes it look neat as a collection.

Wow! Your sister really thought that blanket through, the star is pieced together in a neat way. Pentagonal symmetry is rare.
