After each stripe I have begun making a mini square. Very simple, very easy and I'll have the makings of another ghan when the stripe blanket is done! Just a starting chain and two rows for a 3 inch square.
Patiently (not) waiting for my newest book, crocheted afghans by Melody Griffiths. This has the gingham pattern that I wrote about that Sandy of Teacup Lane did. This may be the next project.
Hope your week is off to a good start.
