So, about two years ago I started on an afghan for my fiance.  It was going to be a bed-sized gray and black thing, and about twenty rows in I abandoned it and restarted completely.  At last, the finished project is done.  Finished it this morning.  It's now a lapghan, and the man loves it.  He and the cat are cuddled with it as I type Smiley  I'm pretty proud of it myself; unfortunately my terrible pictures don't do the colors justice.

I used Red Heart because it's durable and washable.  It's a gigantic granny square since I'm too impatient to make a ton of little ones and then sew them together. 

I got the pattern for the solid square out of a library book, but this http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2008/01/solid-granny-square.html is pretty much the same.  There are also good videos on Youtube is you search "solid grany square."

Happy hooking!

Well, from what I can see here, those colors are smashing!  Great color combo, and nice stitching too!  Red Heart rocks, doesn't it?

BE the change you wish to see in the world-Gandhi

Red Heart is awesome.  Cheap price but in my experience the quality hasn't been cheap Smiley
