  6. Well Pam how cool is that, using a Good and Plenty box for your inspiration! You are so clever. I love the afghan and the colors really rock.

  7. Way too go. Your best yet. Of course, I aDORe the color and you were right. Perfect name. You know once you name them it's hard to let go of. Darling border too. I may just be a copycat on that one.

  8. Pammy!

    I LOVE those colors!!!


  9. Pammy Sue, You never cease to amaze me with your creativity...I love the idea ....of naming the blankys..I think an oreo and dark chocolate and milk chocolate colors would be hot

  10. It's a winner for sure.

  11. Dear Pammy Sue,

    that looks the Candy Colours and thank you so much for sharing!
    Enjoy your Day and have Fun,

  12. Now thats lovely,... colours and crochet.. I like the box of lollies too, but have to say only chocolate will do :))

  13. I love how you name your afghans. I love your afghans. I really, really do. So pretty and soft, reminds me of one I have that my Nan made... same colors... a little more retro... but I love the purples...

  14. I love the colors! I hope mine is as pretty as yours.

  15. Beautiful work, Pammy! LOVE the colors!.. AND the candy too! ~tina

  16. I love the colors! This is so cute. Now you've got me thinking about candy and yarn. How about a Napoleon colored one, cream, pink and chocolate. Of course you have to eat chocolate while you make it, you know, for inspiration and all. :)

  17. Beautiful ghan. Love those colors together and such a simple idea. Thanks for sharing it.

    Could you tell me how to do the border please? Thanks for a beautiful pattern.

  19. The stitches may be well-known, but you put them together with whimsical colors in an eye-catching way! Thanks for sharing this - it's the inspiration for a scrap-ghan to use up my newly-organized bits-and-bobs of yarn.

    Happy 2011!

  20. Such a gorgeous afghan! You did a lovely job! :D
