Man Cave Afghan Ta Dah!

"Man Cave" or "Kosestua"?

Coordinating with the fabric that was chosen for the
"Man Cave".
The man (the NVO, that is) is such a good sport for allowing me to incorporate this fabric into his room. He claims the room is no longer the "Man Cave" he calls it the "Kosestua", which is sort of Norwegian for "Cozy Room". I like that.
 The "Blue Bird of Happiness" coming in for a landing on the Man Cave Afghan.
(Yes, I know, random.)

The Pattern:
From Jan Eatons, Ripple Stitch Patterns.
"Storm Clouds"

The Color Sequence:


The Border:
Edging is a DV stitch  (Double V stitch=1 dc, 1 ch, 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc, 1 ch, 1 dc) all in the same stitch and then a sc between each DV.

Norwegians love geraniums, so of course, they must be photographed with the afghan. :-)

Now it's time to finish up the room...so many details that will be in a series of upcoming posts.
Have a Fantastic Day!
Ha en Fantastick Dag!
