Whenever I get bored, you can usually find me crocheting an afghan/blanket or playing WoW.
I've made a few over the past year or so, and I decided that I would share them.

I only really know how to crochet granny squares, so my afghans/blankets are usually either just a big granny square or lots of little ones put together.

This first one, I ran out of the original green I started with, and I had it for a long long time. I couldn't find the exact green to match it, so I just grabbed some from the store. I still like it & it does it's purpose =P

This is one I made for my brother for his birthday. His favorite color is green. I started with three small granny squares in the middle then treated those just like a regular granny square.

I had a grab bag of balls of yarn for this one and the next blanket. I don't look when I grab the yarn out, and whatever happens happens.

I hope you enjoyed these.
I advise everyone to make a grab bag blanket/afghan at some point, I find it so fun. And it's a way to use up balls of yarn that you don't quite know what to do with. I'm working on another one now, and it's coming out to be very random and fun.

I have a soft spot in my hard for the grannies, it was the first think I learned to make in crochet. Way to be adventurous with the grab bag crocheting, I'm always really uptight about the colors being just right and that sounds like a way to let loose.

Great collection. Love #3 and hope one day to learn to read a pattern and do a proper granny square. You do awesomely random work.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
