Krys, no I haven't ever thought about an american flag pattern. I would imagine that would be harder then it looks. I am content doing my various "spins" on the ripple pattern.
Working on two more, one for my oldest sons girlfriend and her young son. I have some "left over" yarn from previous projects for the little guy, but will need to purchase some new yarn for her. Travis doesn't want to "share" his afghan. lol He asked me to make them each their own. It's fine with me. Maybe I can get the little guys done by Christmas. At least that is the goal. I am sure he will be so thrilled to have his own.

Niters every one.
