I really like the colors!  I always stick with just 2 or 3 colors and never adventure into wild color schemes like you!  I like it.

As for a joining method, this is one that I like a lot:

My mum suggested chain stitching them together?
Did you sew them with invisible thread?

I love it. I started an afghan a couple of years ago and still haven't finished it. I start on it and then see something quick like a hat or stuffed object and end up abandoning it again. Sigh.

No, it's just the same colour as the cream edging so you can't really see it.

That's funny! I prefer making blankets - lots of mindless squares! I really don't enjoy making toys because it's always so faffy and involves stopping to sew little bits on and things. I wish I enjoyed it more - there are so many cute amigurumi to make!

Inspiration without application is moot.

Gorgeous colors and wonderful patterns.

I may have to try this for one of my own blankets.

I loved the varied simplicity. They're all diferent squares but they match and fit together perfectly. :3 Congrats on a gorgeous blanket.

It took me a long time. But I'm never sure if that's because I sit in front of the TV crocheting and then realise that I'm holding the square and staring slack-jawed at the TV instead of actually crocheting!

That's one good thing about knitting - I can do it without looking down. But I can't crochet without looking (can anyone?)

I'd say I was working on it for about 6 months at least.
