After I finished the Round Ripple Blanket for William, I searched my collection for an afghan pattern perfect for Elizabeth and settled on Sampler Stripes because I like the texture of a variety of patterns and I was drawn to the colors used in the published pattern.

Elizabeth is retiring from the college at the end of this semester. She's similar to me in a lot of ways! Over the last few years, we got to know each other better and have been lunching together every 2 weeks or so the past few months. I'll miss seeing her around campus!
