I wanted to do an afghan for so long and when I started searching for a pattern, this one from Lion Brand caught my eye: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kew-gardens-afghan
Anyway, this is what I ended up with:
It's made out of scraps of yarn and some really old yarn I had (well, the yellow yarn close to the border actually belonged to my mom, but since she wasn't using it - not for lack of trying, let me tell you - I decided to add it to my project). I hate that it's starting to curl, though I'm thinking it's because I worked about 52 rows. Way more than what the pattern says. Anyway, I wanted to make it big enough to fit my bed, but I decided against it when I saw how curly it got.
BUT it is comfy and warm. I didn't block it though, since I don't have a board this big and I didn't want to iron it either... I figure it will set once I wash it, though I'm not sure if I should wash it in the washing machine
