Im sure that most of you who crochet have your "boredom/distraction" crochet projects, you know the ones, that scrap blanket in the trunk of your car, or that sweater you'll finish for some christmas. Well this was mine. A Long, long time ago, when I first started crocheting I told My hubby I would make him a Tetris blankie...so 1 year of boredom and about 10 skeins of yarn later.. I give u all my masterpiece!!! Tetris a la Granny!* Ohhh, ahhh!*

I love how scary my son looks in this shot.. but he jumped in at the last moment, just to say hi to the camera..lol:


Progress shot..Well, you can atleast get a good look at most of the pattern in this shot:


The completed work! Yay!


The back and sooo many ends!:


Trust me, the hardest part of making this was sketching out the graph...I wanted it to look like a game that was about to be won.. instead of just interlocking pieces. I mustve drawn this up about 10 times... and I still messed it up about 3 times in the process. Over all, it was much fun!

I like this so much more than many of the other granny-square blankets I've ever seen!!  Great job.
