Here are pics of the lapghan I made for my BIL. I haven't washed or blocked it yet and some of my sides look a bit wonky. All pics are clickable.

I used a slip stitch to join the squares then did a granny border.
Hopefully I will be able to get a pic of him with the lapghan soon.

Mommycrochets, it came out great! But, the thought of weaving in all of those oends ont he 2 squares with alternating red and blue rounds... ugh!

It's really easy to take care of that...When you change colors, as you begin to crochet with the new color, lay the end from the old color along the top of your work...crochet over it!  Then all you have to do is trim instead of weaving in all the ends!  That's my little trick that works well for me.

That's exactly what I do! It is SO helpful. I hate weaving in ends. :\

I'm so tempted to join in here with the March square and make the missing two squares when I have time at some point over the year, but I have no idea if I'll be able to hack it - I taught myself to crochet *today* and don't actually appear to be very good! [grin] I had a look at the March pattern and frankly it may as well be in French for all I can understand it.

...uh, I really shouldn't use that turn of phrase, what with how I actually speak French and all [grin] It may as well be in, uh, Turkish. Yeah. Turkish.

That's what I do too. Much better than weaving ends in!

And Persephone, you should join in! It might be easier if you start with something like a regular granny square, or something with back and forth stripes. You could use these for filler squares. And then move on to the monthly squares. I personally am not doing February and March (the person I'm making the afghan for doesn't like hearts or 3D motifs), so I'll be doing and posting some different patterned squares I'll use as fillers. I'm almost done with the January square, so may post a pic tonight/tomorrow. Yay!

thanks for posting the new square!! i'm not sure if i'm going to do this one tho.. not sure if i will like the way it will go with the others.. i like that it has the 3D flower but i think i want the afghan to be flat. its still cool tho! thanks for taking the time and sorting out the corrections and everything too!  Grin
I was worried about the same thing. I like those sorts of squares And may make it anyway jsut for the experience but I don't think I'll add it to this afghan.

I just posted my Ravelry square on Ravelry and on my blog, and I'm going to start the Irish Rose square while I watch WWE. Cheesy

I love the 3D-ishness of this square and I can't wait to get started on it! I haven't done a square like this before. Might be another week before I get the chance but i'm looking forward to it!
