Hello! I made this afghan for my mom out of scraps that my grandmother Left me. I got the pattern out of a book called Crochet For Today. I'm really proud of it. I'm not sure I ever want to make another granny square again though! all those ends to sew in...  Tongue



I'm not sure how big it is. I forgot to measure before I gave it to her. It's lying on my queen size bed so it's pretty big (yes, I live in a garage.) So yeah tell me what you think! I hope to post alot more of my FOs now that I have a camera!

Your afghan is gorgeous! Great job!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.

So beautiful!  I really love the colors, and I know what you mean about the painstaking end sewing.

sweeeet. Wink

I was lucky enough to find someone else's granny-squares blanket second-hand, and I love it, even though it's getting kind of knackered now. that's got a sort of black & scraps type construction going on as well, but without the geometric patterning you've done - I like it.

also, I just wanted to say - whether it's by choice or not, I enjoy the fact that you're living in a garage, and when I read it I was like, hey, how cool!

Smiley hope your mum loves the blanket too,
speak to you soon.
