Travel Afghan Block #53

For my Travel Afghan I'm always looking for a yarn that is specific to the area or the shop I'm visiting and Charlotte Yarn had the perfect choice, a yarn called "The Girls". This yarn is dyed specifically for the shop and each colorway is named after someone who works there. 

The colors in the picture of the afghan block, below, are more accurate.

 Of course, I had to pick Remi's colorway, "Sweet Sunshine" for my afghan.


Pattern:  Rambling Rows Afghan from Cottage Creations
I started with 80 stitches for the rectangular block

Yarn:  Charlotte Yarn's 'The Girls'
Color - Sweet Sunshine, for the owner, Remi
Heavy worsted weight, 17sts x 21 rows = 4"
250 yards

  Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm

Note:  This is block #53 of 55.

Next block:  Denver.  How hard will it be to pick out one yarn for the afghan during a yarn crawl that includes 23 shops, plus there are more shops that aren't participating in Yarn Along the Rockies?  I think I'm up to the challenge!
