I made TONS of the 30 minute scarfs for Christmas gifts - so, I had a bit of Lion Brand Thick and Quick yarn (relatively small amounts) left over.  So - I started an afghan - I had to buy a few extra skeins to finish it up - but, here it is.  I love it - it's nothing exciting - just HDC throughout.  But, I really like it!!  It's like some of my favorite scrappy quilts...

The colors are 'off' in this pic - but, you can pretty much tell.  I didn't measure it - but, it does fit a twin size bed nicely - though, it will be used, much as in this picture - just a basic throw! 

Did I mention that I love this?Huh?  In case not - I love this Wink

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Thanks!  I am quite proud - though, it really didn't take that long, as it was done with thick and quick yarn and a Q hook - but, it is my 'biggest' finished crocheted project, so I am proud!

I was able to utilize all of the colors of yarn that I used for my scarves, with the exception of a lemongrass green - so, it actually worked out quite well!!

Thanks, again!

Really pretty! Crazy, I actually had the same idea... I started an afghan the day after Christmas using all my left over yarn from Christmas presents.  Mine's about 3/4 finished.  Your colors all seem to go together pretty well, and it's neat because you have 'pieces' of the presents you made for people!

That's so cool - can't wait to see yours too!!  Yes, I like the idea of having a 'piece' of the presents I made.  And, it is oh - so warm, too!! Smiley

Very pretty and what a great idea! Did you double up on the yarn? This is a must-do. (i have too many of those!) Cheesy

Hey - no, I didn't double up.  It is the Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick - so, it is a heavy yarn anyway.

Beautiful afghan!  Now, if only I could do multiple projects with the same kind of yarn, I could do something like that.  I have the hardest time figuiring out what to do with leftover yarn because I hardly ever use the same type of yarn twice!
