lol, what a title eh?

ok. my friends are fans of tetris. they're pregnant and the baby is due in may. I've made them boots, mitts and a matinee set already, but they needed something with a more personal touch I thought.

here it is, idea inspired by a tetris heart cross stitch, it took me 2 weeks of "down time" done on a 4mm hook, various yarns, all the same square, and yes. the back is as neat as the front Wink

it is actually rectangular, but i couldnt get a good overhead shot.

heres the back

the mohair yarn is really soft, the fuzzy yarn is soft too and i thought it'd be fun for girlie to play with later on.

Excellent job!  I made a Tetris afghan a few years ago, and granny squares are definitely the ONLY way to go (in my opinion).  The heart shape is great, well done!

Awesome!   Cheesy

My thumb cramps just thinking about playing Tetris . . .

No more blog + no more facebook = more time for crafting!

I'm also JenGoPop at Ravelry.
