The End of the (Sophie's) Universe

There are plenty of members of the Sophie's Universe who, like me, have not finished their afghans. However, this crochet-along has come an end. I have a few completed projects to share with you today. There is a special treat, too, at the end of today's post.

As always, the photographs are the property of the person whose name they are with. They are used here with permission. I am very grateful to the members who have shared their talents for the last four months.

Patricia Anne Pierce - See the post with Patricia's project from beginning to almost end here. Her photos were also part of this post . She has donated her Sophie to a raffle for the Monacan Indian Nation Powwow. 

Rita Miller - Rita used Patricia's color-round pattern, but used Red Heart Super Saver Real Teal and Soft White as her colors.

And now, for the special treat. From the beginning of my blog, I posted about Sophie's Garden, which is the center of Sophie's Universe. These beautiful designs are from the mind of Dedri Uys, while the center mandala was "heavily inspired by Chris Simon." I am very grateful that Dedri has allowed me to share her work right from my blog's fist month. 

Below are Dedri's finished projects using three different yarn weights. While the photos are the same size, the completed afghans are not.

Yarn: Softfun

This is the end of Sophie's Universe posts here. I hope you...

Wendy Mohr - When I saw this completed Sophie's Universe, I immediately asked Wendy if I could post her pictures in an updated post. I made these pictures extra-large, because I wanted the details to be visible. I had not seen one with the squares around the outside; they are an optional finish. I am definitely going to do this with my afghan; it is gorgeous! Her color choices are excellent, too.
