2016 temperature afghan thru July

Temperature afghan is moving along nicely. It wasn't difficult to get back into the routine. I do most of the crocheting while watching TV. I've also continued using my stitch markers to make sure I don't miss the end stitch and to mark the end of each month, just for reference.

The Brava Sport Caution I used for the 100 degree temperature is very close in color to the Canary. It just has a bit more orange to it. I had a moment of wishing I'd chosen a shade with more variation in color, but it is only one row and when I realized it I had already gone a number of rows past it. 

At this point, the afghan is approximately 40" long. It is doubled over in the picture so it is twice as wide as it looks on my loveseat.

As I've said before, I'll give all the details when it's done but quickly note that I am using a G hook and Knit Picks Brava Sport yarn.

The Paprika yarn I was waiting for has been a bit of a disappointment. It has had a few thick spots and some flat bits that have a plasticy feel. If I have to cut out a bit on a one-row color I generally start the row over and I've had to start a couple of rows over with this yarn. All in all it's not the quality I expect from Knit Picks. I hope it is not a sign of things to come in the line. That would be disappointing.

Happy crocheting!
