I made this afghan for a friend of mine!  Since I was planning on starting it around the olympics, I decided to enter it in the 2010 Ravelympics.  I was happy to actually complete it in time!  I think it turned out great.  I did a simple granny square using super bulky sheep's yarn on a 10mm hook.  In total there are 25 squares and a single crochet stitch around the perimeter.  It's very heavy, but super soft!

It looks really soft and cuddly.  And I love that it is all in one colour.  Great job!  Lucky friend!

It's beautiful. I love granny squares when they are done in one color. It makes them look so...elegant. Great job!
