Say hello to the newest addition to the Ocean Afghan! A plump little whale! This guy can be made in many different colors - get creative! I was set on doing an orca whale, but the black did not translate well and the face really got lost so I ended up with a cute blue whale instead!

Only two more designs to go! I'm already joining them up and it's looking fantastic! Can't wait to share the whole afghan :)
