I really like the pattern in this afghan, and while I can't find all the colors, I'm sure I can come up with something similar. I really do like the pattern, but I'll be making it a bit larger. Thanks for giving the multiples!

I LOVE the colors on this pattern. However, I am having trouble finding the "Ranch Red-0352" yarn. Also, the "Warm Brown-0336" is hard to find (except on-line). Are these retired colors? Can you suggest an alternate color with will work instead?

I like this cornucopia of colors plus it is inspiring to know that the pattern has been made available for us conveniently in the front page. Thanks for that. We appreciate it.
