Hello Craftster!

I know I tend to peek my head in here about once a year, and I'm very sorry about that.  But it seems I only really pick up my hook around the holidays (New Years Resolution: crochet more).

As the thread title indicates, I only seem to make Epic Projects, such as the Tetris afghan and the Pac-Man Scarf (back).

This year brings yet another enormous, time-consuming project that I finished very early this morning (a Christmas miracle!). This time, I was a good girl and tried to document the entire process. Be prepared, there's a ton of photos here.

I'm posting the final image first so that it shows up in the forum index. Is that vain? I don't care. Wink


It started with squares

Lots of squares

No joke

A face appears!

I'll stop making dumb captions now

OMG it's done!

Then I finally started using Instagram (SheriB626, if anyone is interested)

The way I was joining squares did not lend itself to hiding ends, so I wound up having to sew in ALL OF THE ENDS. I don't recommend it to anyone who wants to keep their sanity.

Finally finished!

And now, the Official Photos!

I am SO EXCITED. This is a Secret Santa swap gift, and while I've been sharing my progress with the group that's doing it, my giftee has no idea that it's going to him.  So everyone is pretty much going "OMG I hope Sheri is sending it to ME!"  I can't wait to ship it, my only regret is that it obviously won't be there by Christmas.

Thanks for looking everyone!

I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Epic! I'm so jealous of the recipient, and so jealous of you for making it Grin If I stare at this post any longer, I'll go looking into my wool stash...
How big is it?

So many squares! This is gorgeous, and certainly epic! Great job.

I'm working on one of these right now.  It's my BIL's Christmas present, but...well, I can just give it to him in February, and he'll be so surprised and touched at a random, large present (until my dear sister, in her trademark way, goes, "Uhh, that was your Christmas present.")

It looks great!  What hook size did you use?
