I'm jealous. Granny squares aren't too difficult, but the sheer size of this project amazes me. I can't believe that you kept your tension and you had the patience to complete this as your first. I also love your color choices. I can't wait to see what's next!

Oh, and the pic of your daughter cuddling on it is cute too! Aren't you glad she likes it?

I'm slowly gaining the ambition to tackle a granny square blanket. It's the whole reason I taught myself to crochet and it's the only thing I haven't done! This is beautiful!!!!!!

This is definitely beautiful and no "beginner" project. You did great! I've been crocheting for years, including many (many, many) blankets (one of them an 8' x 8'), but never one so complex! The colors are great, the piece-work is very professional looking. My hat's off to you! Beautifully worked.

More afghan awesomeness!!! Is it just me or is the crochet board just busting with the most beautiful colorful afghans lately?

This is lovely! You inspire me to turn my granny trapezoids into true granny squares one day!

My first attempt was a dishcloth that turned out to be a rhombus. Looks amazing- love all the bright colors.
