Are you on facebook? if so please join the knotty knotty hookers group you have got to show this off. OMG! I can't get over the amount of work that went into this. I will forever be comparing everything I crochet or see anyone else crochet, to this piece.
So I've been busy the past 6-8 months. I've caught up on some projects and have even opened up my etsy store in the past week (while at home recovering from an upper respiratory infection) C&C's welcome. I hope to keep up this pace. I'm really enjoying making the headbands. Some of them I've crocheted others are store brought with my own handmade embellishments added. I even have a model lined up for future pictures.
Thanks for all the comments. I am now working on another blanket but this one is a continuous granny square. As for putting the squares together in different directions. I wish I could but I'm to OCD for that. Everything has to be alligned or even numbered or divisible by 2. It takes me a long time to decide on a pattern and get a project completed. I've taken out blankets that were about 3/4 completed because it didn't look right to me.
Yesterday I gifted my auntie with her blanket. She was so thrilled. She told me she was taking it to church today to show it off. She had already been bragging about to her friends at church. I'm glad i did this for her. She's 83 years old who knows how much longer she has on this earth. I love when I make something that makes someone happy. Now working on one for my mother with the leftover yarn.
