My most recent project. I am now crocheting squares and joining them rather than working a one piece pattern. Makes the work finish a lot quicker. C & C welcome.

Well hello there to all you crafters.
I am a today newbie to this wonderful site!  I just happened to be looking for a site to make rag rugs and ran across this one making them out of hulla hoops.  GREAT JOB!
I just viewed this beautiful baby blanket and had an idea!  Instead of putting the squares together with the pattern running all the same, why not turn every other square so that the pattern runs in a different direction each time.  Haven't done this yet but it sure sounds interesting tho.
Thanks for the awesome website!  Plus your too funny to listen to and watch!

Thanks for all the comments. I am now working on another blanket but this one is a continuous granny square. As for putting the squares together in different directions. I wish I could but I'm to OCD for that. Everything has to be alligned or even numbered or divisible by 2. It takes me a long time to decide on a pattern and get a project completed. I've taken out blankets that were about 3/4 completed because it didn't look right to me.
