What I had done before:


What I added last night:


I think I'll use the granny stripe joining method (I really can't remember the name of it right now), and I think I'll use a chocolate brown for it.

Also, should I keep to the smaller squares with three levels, or go for four? I kind of want to keep it at three since I'm using three colors, but I can't decide yet.

I love the colors you are using, Bananaleg!  I like it on the simple side, too! =]

Here's what kept me busy for the first week of September:


set aside while on the hunt for more thrifted rug yarn.  I'm working on a greens/white one, now.

I kissed a seal and I liked it.

That would look perfect in my spare room Bananaleg! Cant wait to see it finished.

Hooray for thrifty yarn afghans V. looks great!

I have to take a granny hiatus until the end of the month, I had a birthday request from my cousin for an afghan. I have 16 rows started of a Florentine Bargello afghan in some of her favorite colors so that is what she is getting.

Pray for me to finish in time please! Smiley

Love that pattern M.!! I've done part of one of those until I ran out of yarn for it.  The piece I did finish is on the back of a loveseat in the basement.  I hope that you make it in time...that's a lot of stitching!  I hope to do another for a friend next year for her birthday in purple, black, grey, and white!

Update on my progress so far:
I did get confirmation that the quilting group WILL accept crocheted afghans as well as quilts for the blanket drive, so I'm continuing work on that. I'm up to 5 finished squares so far.
I'm also working on my Dad's blanket, which I had to set aside over the summer. It was way too hot to work on when it's over a hundred degrees outside-LOL! That one is big enough to completely cover the top of a king sized bed, so I only have about a foot left to go on it before I can give it to Dad. His birthday is in November, so if I can finish it before then I'll be a happy camper. Smiley
Glad to see everyone's progress! I'll try to get pictures up at some point soon.

I started making chain mail jewelry in June 2011, and started my own company, Incendia Designs, in August 2011. I also crochet, act, sew (a little) and am enjoying being a newlywed!

Hi, I havent joined in on any of these before, despite having made two crochet square blankets already.  This is the one I am working on at the moment for my brothers girlfriend.


I am also working on a pastel coloured blanket for my mum but haven't done as much on that one yet.

Each blanket will have 70 squares.
