This is made from a shell pattern that my husband's aunt gave to me. She taught me how to make a granny square, which of course, uses the DC which I had no idea how to do before she showed me hot to do it. I have been 'unstopable' ever since...lol. I do like this pattern but it takes a lot of yar. I only get 8 rows per skein of yarn but it's for my daughter. It's about half done now and in the colors she's picked out, I think it's very pretty. I will finish it. Really, I will. I WILL!
