I am so freaking excited that I crocheted myself a granny square afghan!!! This baby was a labor of love and I am so proud of her. I worked on her off and on for 10 months with tons of breaks in between. I will say that I hoped it was going to be a bit bigger, I'm horrible at measurements and things like that. It's the perfect size for a twin bed but gets the job done on my full size.
Anyways...on to the pics!











I really love her a lot.  I've now started on a big multi colored chevron afghan for my boyfriend to use.  It's kind of nice have a giant project to pick up and put down between other projects over a long period of time.

Thanks so much for looking!

I wish I had the patience to make that many little squares.  Undecided
I love your color choice! The black border really makes the colors pop.
