got tired of not working with yarn in either knit or crochet, I went back to the good old granny squares to make it seem like I'm doing something.  I was doing the square granny squares for awhile this morning, and thought i'd look thru the crochet-along to see if there were granny squares to post my wips, and came across the rectangles. 

what an interesting concept, I had just been working with the squares, sooooo... i abandoned my squares and thought i'd try the rectangles.  I think I didn't read the directions thorough enough... but I manage to fudge it ok. 

I don't like how it expands length wise faster than width wise, so i added more width wise, and it's working well for me.

i honestly have no idea how they lost it.  usps sent me letter a couple weeks ago informing me of this.  apparently the address label came off of the box, and the had sent that to me.  the crazy thing is i had taped over the label with packing tape so there's no way that was coming off.  usps actually sent me a part of the box.  i'm currently having them search for it.  but i'm doubting they'll find it.  i had put the blanket in a box i had gotten from work.  (i work in a lab by the way).  the box used to hold nitrile gloves.  I had blacked out the glove labels with marker but you could still kind of see it.  i'm guessing someone might have opened up the box hoping to find some sort of medical goodies to use or sell and instead they found a big blanket.  i'm hoping that they find it but it's already been a few weeks.

Question...

If you were to use this concept as the base for a rectangular granny scarf, should the chain be in multiples of 3 or 4. For example, the base chain for the afghan calls for 48 and then dc in 4th ch from hook leaving 45 stitches across. I'm assuming it's multiples of 3 on the stitches?

Hey, I really love the look of this afghan!
One problem though, I'm a knitter.
Most of this is greek to me.
Is there any site comparable to www.knittinghelp.com for crochet?
I know the bare basics (chaining, single and double crochet, but I don't know most of the abbreviations she uses in the pattern.
You can pm me the site if you want, I know most of my post is a bit off topic.

So as it turns out, I didn't know how to do single and double.
I was doing slip stitches as single crochet and I need to look at the video for double again (I don't have my hook on me atm).
Thanks a ton for your help!
As soon as I finish my swap package, I'll be starting up on this with my acrylic scraps!
