Brilliant! I love the colours and different squares. I've just learned to crochet and feel very impressed by what you've accomplished; it looks so much better and more lively than other crocheted blankets I've seen, too!

So beautiful. I really want to make something like that, but I'm really worried about the putting together bit.

Very nice blanket. I like the granny gone wild-look.
Well done!

This is beautiful. It would be a project I would start and not get around to finishing, I think. Great job!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!   It would take me forever to do something like this -- and I've always wanted to, so I better start now!  You ROCK! (and so does your awesomeness of granny square afghan!

Wow, thanks for all the lovely comments. I'm glad you all like it. thanks to brigidamor for the tip on blocking. I'll hopefully give it a try. It would just finish it off nicely but i'm kinda sick of looking at the blanket at the moment. Wink

Anyone thinking about making one should just go for it. It's easier than a normal granny because you don't get bored of making the same squares over and over. Putting it together was a pain in the a**, I didnt really have much of a plan and I kept having to make extra squares but when you see it coming together it's worth it.

Again, thanks for your comments
