Thank you so much everybody!!
Finishing your first afghan is a milestone and a testament to your crafty patience..........
perhaps you could use it as a lapghan or cuddle blanket whilst reading or watching TV once it gets cooler
This indeed tested my patience when I was joining all the granny squares together, and it made me appreciate all the craftsters here who have been giaganormous afghans using the same techniques.
And thanks for the suggestion. I'll mostly be using it as a lapghan, or will probably gift it to any of the cousins if they happen to have a baby!!
That is beautiful I really need to work on learning to crochet.
Well, here are the links for the tutorials I used. After searching all over the internet, I zeroed in on the following, as I found their instructions the easiest, so far less daunting than most others. Hope this helps....Granny square
. Attaching squares
. Scallop Edging
Isn't the internet great?
I can't begin to sing praises for internet, most of my craft skills are courtesy internet!
Those colours really look great together. The dark really makes everything else pop!
Thank you so much. I was afraid that dark and light combination might make it look too tacky, but the combination seems to have worked well, fortunately!
