it looks like i'm going to have to tear it apart and redo it...or at least about half of what i've done. i was making this in sort of nature colors...cream, brown,forest green but i find out the place its going has lavendar in it. i have a ball of lavendar and might be able to do one stripe of that color every foot or so...maybe. i'm making it for people who have no heat in their upstairs so i'm making it with doubled yarn.

I made an afghan with doubled-yarn once. It was very heavy but also very warm too. I would switch out one strand of yarn for another color every now and then to blend the colors a bit and ended up with a tweedy effect as well. And I wasn't using any variegated yarn in it but it kinda looked like I had.

You can sneak a bit of lavendar in it, after all a lot of flowers in the forest are that color. Sounds like it will be very nice.

I know you have some somewhere, you had leftovers when you made that one project. The purply stripes don't have to be very big to make a nice impact in the overall color of the afghan.

well,these blankets are full size bed sized so they're pretty wide...gonna take a lot of yarn to get one row done.
i really need to get to micheals...i got my secret santa person and she says she collects aprons and doesn't have one with a pug on it so i'd like to make her one. i thought about making making one then realized i could do it cheaper and it wouldlook better ifi just bought one of those blank ones from micheals and either cut out one of my pugs in felt and sewed it on or painted a pug on the fabric.

andrea gave me the thought of getting a picture of the dogs the person i have for ss owns and doing a transfer of them. it would be a simple iron on thing so it wouldn't take so long to do as trying to design something and then trying to get to micheals to get the stuff to get it done.
i was out a bit today and am still looking for a plain cream or white apron but they're nowhere to be found.

Have you looked online to see who has them? That way you'd know if the stores nearby even have them before you bother to walk/get a ride over to them. What style of apron did you have in mind/

A pug picture should show up nicely against a red background as long as the red doesn't bleed through the pic itself. Fabric paint should work well enough so that won't happen.

since i can't get to micheals or any other place that sells stuff like fabric paint i'm going to have to try to get an iron on transfer done on one of the printers upstairs. the ink i have for my printer is cheap and really doesn't make a decent picture. (I need to stop buying refurbished ink and just spend the money on the good stuff...the epson carts see to last me 6 months or longer and give a better picture).

You should use the ironon stuff made for dark fabrics. Otherwise the red of the apron will bleed through the transfer and you'll have a red pug on that apron.

i might just keep the apron and maybe send it to her for valentine's day. i think i've accumliated enough stuff otherwise to put in the box (including either 'snowman poop' or ' polar bear poop')

How about a pug face money purse instead? Just need a few pieces of felt, and handstitch it, finished off with a big snap to keep it closed.

I saw that, but knew you wouldn't have done that if they'd had the right color chin.
