Watching Sophie's Universe Grow with Sara Paplia

It is a privilege to present today's blog. One of my fellow crocheters of Sophie's Universe, Sara Paplia, has given me permission to share her photos here. Sara takes photos of her Sophie as Parts are completed. 

Sara has 19 colors of Red Heart Super Saver yarn, which is a worsted-weight size 4 yarn. This weight uses a larger crochet hook, and the finished product is the largest of the demonstrated pattern at Look At What I Made.

It is fascinating to watch Sophie grow.

Note how Sophie looks 3-D even in a picture

UPDATE  - Sara has finished her Sophie's Universe; here are two additional pictures to show the completed afghan.
