I know it's not original or anything, but I made a giant granny square blanket. I'm actually happy with the way it turned out and I'm a little surprised with myself that I actually stuck with a project long enough to finish it. I used simply soft yarn so it's really soft and light weight.

Good job!  It turned out very nice and grats for sticking with it!  I know how it is to have a big idea and then lose interest and set it aside so good for you for finishing!   Grin

You deserve some serious mad skills props for finishing it.
It's beautiful! I usually go crazy for bright colors but I love this, it's so graphic.
Congrats on finishing it!

I like the simplicity of it and your color choices. I have a giant granny square blanket in blues that looks like yours.   Smiley

You've inspired me to take my giant granny square out of the closet and finish it up after setting it aside for a year =)

Ok So I learned to just do six dc in the corners to make a granny square. But It looks like you did more than that! where did you learn to do it?
