I came up with this because i need a quick, but pretty afghan pattern. This is pretty basic, but with the color changes I think it just flows so well. I think i'm going to try it again with more colors and changing them every two blocks.

Gauge: 16 sts and 20 rows= 4" square
Needles: US size 10 circluar needle
Using White (or first color) CO 270 stitches
Rows 1-14 knit all stitches
row 15: k10 * p10, k10* repeat ending with k10
row 16: k10 *k10, p10* repeat ending with k10
rows 17-26: repeat rows 15 and 16.
Row 27: k10 *k10, p10* repeat ending with k10
Row 28: k10 *p10, k10* repeat ending with k10
Rows 29-38: repeat rows 27 and 28.
Repeat blocks 1 & 2 changing colors as indicated for a total of 30 blocks.

Woo hoo! They're finally finished! I've taken a vow to not put anything new on my needles until I've finished all of the other things I've started (with one exception that i'll post soon). These socks are great and I can already imagine how nice and toasty my feet will be on those cold winter days. I have a feeling I'll be making a lot more monkeys in the future

Ok, so i have been suffering severly from WIPitis (work-in-progress itis). Hence the reason for not posting for sometime. I've been working on so many different things that i just can't seem to get anything finished, lol.
Well i am still suffering from WIPitis, but i am just going to post the progress for some of the things i've been working on :)
I fell in love with this pattern the first time i saw it!! I'm hoping it will replace my "well-loved" gray sweatshirt hoodie when its finished.
Here's what the finished sweater will look like (hopefully).
These are pretty quick to knit and they would probably be done if i could keep focused on one project.
