Ocean Waves Afghan wip


I’ve been busy getting projects done.  And I started another project today from The Crochet Crowd, the Ocean Waves Afghan.  I guess I’m really liking the challenge of getting these projects done and sharing the results on FaceBook.

I’m using my Giant Ball of orange yarn (actually labeled ‘Giant Ball’) and using up scrap yarn for the alternate rows.  I’m expecting it’ll be interesting!  Hopefully I’ll make a lot more room in my stash for more yarn.

This is what I’m Hookin’ On Hump Day!
