I have also finished the back:
The patterns is called Roundabouts, also from those clever mathematicians at Woolly Thoughts.
The next step is to make the gusset and join front to back, decide on handles, and felt the whole thing.

I think this pattern is extremely cool. I doubt that I have enough yarn to make it into an afghan, and I am not really wild about woolen knitted cushion covers. Now I'm thinking TOTE BAG, with this on one side and some other geometric pattern on the other. All using the leftovers from two Philosophers Wool sweaters. I have never before made a tote, but I am a Bag/Purse Ho. You just can't have too many.
The rest of the yarn I have to work with -- a goodly amount of navy, copper, and coral, and bits and pieces of everything else. Copper will be the next color used, then finish with navy. The coral is too bright and pink for this design. It will be a major player on the reverse side.
The round washcloth from stash. Nice design, so I am doing another one in orange from stash. It looks way more complicated than it is, although I have sightly modified some of the original instructions to make them more user-friendly.
I realize that, in an earlier post, I may have been a trifle unfair to You-Can't-Fix-Stupid Brando. Made him look like a total punk, which he is. Here is a different side of him, a kinder, gentler, and quite decorative Brando, guardian to DH snoozing on the sofa.
