Let it snow, let it snow

There are flakes falling outside and there should be more flakes here inside too but I can't seem to find the right color of blue to finish my snowflake afghan. I ran out of the Red Heart blue I was using. I thought it was called midnight blue but I can't find that anywhere and I've been to Michaels, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and two different Walmarts! The closest I coudl find was called soft navy but there seems to be a color difference. I'm going to work up a few motifs tonight and see if I notice the color change or not. I still have 13 motifs to fnish plus the the edging. Here is how the afghan looks tonight.

The other afghan that I'm working on is this one. It is worked in a different color for each row in order to see the stitching, so there are lots of little tails to tuck in! I love how it is turning out though and its an easy one to work on. Just single crochet, double crochet and then treble crochet. You end each row with the treble crochet and then you tie off, turn the piece and start with a new color. You would start the new color with a single crochet on top of the treble crochet from the last row. Very simple, very fast.

It is really coming along nicely. It is nice to see one put together other than the original picture. Hope your yarn matches. I have different colors of white in mine. Love the other ghan too. I may try one of those.
