Here is my WIP for the Mystery Afghan CAL. Clue #8 can be found here.
This week we started on the border with two more rows. The 1st round of the border added a nice solid foundation for the border and left a little pop of color from the join. I love this! The last row uses a criss-cross treble stitch. While trebles are my least favorite stitch (I usually get snagged pulling my yarn over through the last loops!), this gives a neat effect and texture for the border. I have learned SO many new techniques during this CAL! The ideas of how to apply these elsewhere in my works leave me light-headed at times!
Here are some more images of Week #8 WIP:

I hope you all will following along with my progress (here or through Facebook) or sign-up yourself and post your own progress! I think this will be a great project for myself to learn and grow my skills. I am very excited to be participating in my 1st crochet along!
