Because of this story by [livejournal.com profile] frea_o and a comment I made there and a comment she made back, I've started working on a variation of this afghan:



but in these colors:

And this is what a large square looks like and what a medium square looks like before the square sets in:

Does it remind you of this picture:

I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS I MIGHT LEARN TO CROCHET. I WANT A BULLSEYE AFGHAN.

Also, since the coffee story kind of inspired this, I have some gifs for you about that:

Thank you!

If you truly want to learn, I will come up with introductory courses for you! It's something we've talked about doing so it'll just mean I'll have to get off my butt! Of course...

So. Are you telling me that my little prompt not ONLY gave rise to a gem of a story by [livejournal.com profile] frea_o, but ALSO to an Afghan? Well, I never. *coughs modestly, preens a little*

I want to see photos when it's done!!!

(And maybe a manip of Hawkeye with a broom...)

I've promised pictures of the process so you will definitely have them!

That would be a pretty cool mannip!

I love them all. I know how to crochet, but only back and forth lines lol

Circles are actually easier for me! No hoping the sides end up even. We found this stitch called the Sideways Shell that is considered a "beginner" that is soooo pretty that I find myself not wanting to do anything else! It's so easy that you feel like you're doing something wrong! I taught both coworkers how to do it and they are both different levels so I can safely say it's super easy.

Anyway, enough rambling about yarn I've gotten sort of addicted to it lately!

Oooooooooooooooooo. I am so tempted to go look for afghan patterns now! I can't wait to see the finished product!

Are you on Ravelry by any chance?

I've signed up for Ravelry under Yarn Tribbles so I can see patterns but I haven't gone much further than that. This is a pattern I found on Lion's Brand.

I don't think I'm going to do all the small circles in a color but do them in gray so there aren't as many noticeable circles. That should keep it from being quite so cluttered. In my head, that seems fine. I wonder what it'll look like in real life!

Also, if you run across a pattern that screams Captain Marvel, will you let me know? I've actually been thinking of doing that quilt for a few days now but can't find anything distinctive.

That is several kinds of awesome!

Got here via frea_o, from the fic that inspired this, and damn. That's going to be the coolest looking thing! I'm ashamed to say I haven't checked my lj feed to in ages, do you happen to have a dw or tumble where I can follow this project?

I need to be better about crossposting (I've been lazy lately) and will put them on my DW. I just friended you over there. Right now, I'm not putting anything on tumblr but I will be - because I want Fraction and Aja to see this when it's done!

*bows* Thank you! I'm going to be posting an update soon with all the other squares that I've gotten finished. It's moving right along! My goal is to have it done before the end of the promptathon!

Speedy lady! Okay, if this is finished before promptathon you NEED to post this as a fill to that prompt, because I would LOVE to put on the mastlist "AFGHAN: " as the start of a fill label, ohmygosh.
