Decadent Stripes Afghan

Once again, my wife commissioned another piece from me.  This time, she wanted an afghan for our living room.  One that would take the place of a blanket that rests on the sofa.  She decided that she loved the Candy Stripes afghan so much, she wanted a larger version to match our space.  2 weeks later, this is the outcome of that request:

I have really enjoyed making these striped afghans.  The line and color possibilities are endless.   I see many striped afghan Christmas presents in my future.  They are quick and fairly simple.  The edging seems to be the only tricky part.
