lol, what a title eh?

ok. my friends are fans of tetris. they're pregnant and the baby is due in may. I've made them boots, mitts and a matinee set already, but they needed something with a more personal touch I thought.

here it is, idea inspired by a tetris heart cross stitch, it took me 2 weeks of "down time" done on a 4mm hook, various yarns, all the same square, and yes. the back is as neat as the front Wink



it is actually rectangular, but i couldnt get a good overhead shot.

heres the back


the mohair yarn is really soft, the fuzzy yarn is soft too and i thought it'd be fun for girlie to play with later on.

Excellent job!  I made a Tetris afghan a few years ago, and granny squares are definitely the ONLY way to go (in my opinion).  The heart shape is great, well done!
