Pink Afghan - Underway

I've enjoyed working on my sock yarn afghan, so much so that I hate for the project to come to an end.  I still have more to do, but I couldn't resist going ahead and starting another.   For the first afghan I was using any and all lengths of sock yarn that I could find.  I've narrowed the field for this second version.  It'll be done in any color as long as it's predominantly PINK.

I've very lucky to have friends and readers that are sharing yarn with me so that I can put as much variety into this blanket as possible.  Each block of the afghan needs approximately 8 yards/7.3metres of fingering/sock yarn.

A few days ago I was excited to open a package from my friend, Judy, and found these gorgeous yarns inside:

Thanks, Judy.  I look forward to add your colors to the afghan.  These yarns are perfect!

Isn't pink a happy color?  I'm enjoying knitting this afghan as much as I did in making the first one.  Just a few minutes ago I finished the seventeenth block.  I think it looks good and will be even prettier when more pinks are added and the afghan grows bigger.
