Red theme afghan - work in progress

When I went to Smiley's Manhattan yarn sale in December, I had no project plan.  So I gave myself this criteria to choose yarn: buy what I thought was pretty.  

Once I got home, I decided to make another afghan. 
Another one!?  

Who knows what I will do with this one. 
Use it, give it as a gift perhaps.  About half way there.

I love butterflies and I love to crochet.  But I have never found a good combination of these two loves.  The glory of a butterfly is its lightness, gossamer wings!   But crochet attempts are too heavy.

They get the shape right, but the airy-ness is lost, as illustrated in these two examples I found on a google search.  However….

This is closer to the lightness I seek… but not there yet.

This baby blanket might be the solution!  It was created by a person named Vivienne Jackson.  I plan to make it as a wall hanging… with crazy colors.
