I LOVE the Roseanna Beck patterns. Fast, simple, easy to read instructions, love the close-up picture, and VERY BEAUTIFUL for as simple as they are. I have made several of them and wish I had time to make more. Thank you for displaying her designs. Sue N.

To keep your afghans from getting fuzzy until they are finished keep them in a big pillow case,it also keeps them from getting dirty.makes it a lot easier to turn so you can start another row.
