nan's irish fisherman afghan

this is a huge to make in one piece deep purple irish fisherman afghan.

i had to put in a few more patterns than i typically do but they blended right in.

the problem

comes when you go to photograph it.

can't quite get the details of the stitches or the color just what i do see.

outside is not much better. i could run it through the scanner to get the exact color, but it's such a huge afghan to do that .

although nan is blind she wanted a deep purple IF afghan to fit on top of her bed. she's not even 5 foot tall but so this will cover her a few times over.

used moss stitch, trinity, interlocking diamonds, cables and honeycombs.

was over 70" long and at least 80" wide
