Two years ago I started an afghan called Ocean Waves. It was a pattern I found in a Crochet Today! magazine. See pic below:
While I love the look of the afghan in the magazine I didn't like the way mine was turning out so I stopped working on it 3/4th of the way through and it sat for 2 years. I dug it back out just a couple months ago and decided to frog it and use the yarn for another afghan. Below is what I came up with, I think it turned out a lot better than the first afghan I had and I am glad I didn't give up on it.
