Finished! I actually did another blanket that I just need to put a border on and it's done

Sorry the picture is so dark. The only other shot I got of it washed out the color, so I figured this one was better. As you can see the middle is all wonky and uneven, but I blame that on it being my first real project. And I was just trying to get rid of yarn, so it's no real loss.  Smiley

And I also made a tiny baby blanket, which I think turned out much much better.

Complete with pug to show size Wink
I thought it was too small, but my mom says it's fine for a baby. And again, just trying to use yarn.

Big improvement from first to second, eh?  Cheesy

a shady lane, everybody wants one.

I'm joining.   Not quite sure what I'm doing yet.  But I've got SO much yarn right now.  I've gained my grandmother's complete stash, along with some things knitted/crocheted things I've found that I'm going to recycle the yarn from.
Including a giant Granny Square afgan that I made when I was younger.  I'll post pictures when I get them.

Inspiration without application is moot.

Wow all of these are awesome! I absolutely love the hexagon ones. Beautiful!

I've never really crocheted before, but I went through a time where I was apparently reeeeally into lionbrand's homespun yarn and I now have tons of skeins all over the place, and decided to give an afghan a try. I watched a youtube video showing how to make a granny square, and have just been making one giant one. It's thick yarn so it's been going pretty quickly. But after seeing all of these, I've decided that I need to actually learn how to crochet! Beautiful!

I did the same thing! I made mine more into a 8 point circle but I used nearly the exact same colors.

I think LB Homespun makes a really good giant granny. I made a lapghan-sized one back in the spring, thinking I would give it to a relative for Christmas, but I like it so much I may keep it for myself.
