Here's what I have so far...



I couldn't sleep much last night so that's the only reason why I got so much done  Tongue

Kristen81, I know your boyfriend will love it  Grin That sounds like a good combo  Wink

Yep...in the beginning...I went around 3 times with the black  (it looks like 6) and then added a new color and I have been doing 3 rows of each color..alternating.

I'm up to 30 rounds..My hand is hurtin' so I'm stopping for a bit.

Can you believe I crocheted (Huh) 8 rows and then realized I hadn't done the corners.  It was curling up like a bowl  Undecided

I frogged it and started again...

Oh!  And when I bought the yarn I bought black Red Heart and Bernat Camo.  Turns out the Bernat Camo is slightly thinner (and softer) and those stitches turned out smaller.  I have been trying to compensate by making 4 dc's with the camo instead of three... seems to be helping a bit.

I'll try to post pics of my progress soon!  Wink

Love this!  Bookmarking instantly.  I'm not in right now (far too much on the hooks and needles -- I need to finish one or tow things), but I really want to make one of these in the future.  My dad complains that all afghans are too short, so I'm thinking I could make a HUGE one of these, and get no complaints.
