Just remember that the odds are against you. You'll probably end up with more scraps then you had to begin with Smiley
Good luck!

I love love LOVE this blanket. I've been slowly kind of working on one myself with scrap yarn. I'm in love with the show Roseanne...it was always on when I pulled all-nighters in college, so I ended up buying all 9 seasons of it. Anyway, they have a blanket like that on their couch that I've been trying to copycat, and this is kind of like it (except yours is much prettier...theirs is more scrap-yarn looking and doesn't match as well). 

Great job!

First, your afghan is beautiful. Your project is an encouragment to me, I began a hex afghan and need 540 hex's to finish- I am at 95 now. the end seems very far away.....

It does look so warm and cozy.  Great job!  I love the colors.  This makes me want to learn how to make granny squares!!!   Cheesy

Wow.  I am also not a huge fan of granny squares, but somehow you have changed my mind.  The colors are amazing, and I now covet this blanket.  And I know how difficult it is to make something look "random" without looking random, ya know?  Fantastic job!

This looks like the biggest blanket evarrr.
I just want to wrap up my whole life and snuggle inside it.
