My monster of a granny stripe afghan! Used 3 strands of "I Love This Yarn" all the way through. It's big enough to cover a king sized bed, weighs approximately 15 pounds, and used a total of 28 full skeins and 9 partial skeins. Started around February 10th or so, finished April 14th. Pattern is based on Attic24's granny stripe, but color inspiration came from the graduated granny pattern by PSICrochet. Hope you all enjoy! I'm quite pleased with it, looking forward to using it when I go camping next week, and I'm actually considering a version with white instead of black for the base color. Smiley

I started making chain mail jewelry in June 2011, and started my own company, Incendia Designs, in August 2011. I also crochet, act, sew (a little) and work for an awesome year-round haunted house!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
