about how much money did it cost to make this blanket? I really want to make it but I'm not sure I want to invest a lot in buying tons of yarn.  Also, is it hard to sew the granny squares together?

God... I made this a while ago and can't remember how much it cost. It's Red Heart though, so it's not outrageously expensive. And to tell you the truth, sewing the squares together was probably the easiest part of the whole blanket. Not that the rest is hard or anything... I just like sewing with an embroidery needle and yarn Smiley

it cost me about $35 to make using the wool-ease suggested.  Wool-ease tends to run around $2 a ball.

I'm giving it to my boyfriend for our 1.5 year anniversary on Monday. Hope you like it!

How funny!  I started making squares a few months ago between projects to make this for my boyfriend for Christmas (I'm buying a house soon, so I needed to plan ahead on the present making!).  He's in video production and special effects so it's right up his geek-boy alley.

That looks great!  I'm making this one right now, too, for my sister in law.  I had to sub a few different colors though, lol, cause i'm too poor to buy as much yarn as I'd really like haha. Great stuff!
