Your granny afghan is beautifully done, love it! Way back in the 70s my mom made some with oversize squares in shades of blue and purple, they were gorgeous. Love your dog model, too. :o)

What a lovely afghan. I think the colors you chose are great together. Your puppy looks pretty happy with it, too. :)

Beautiful! I just started making grannies, with hopes to turn it into a blanket, someday!
I have to admit, this is my first time using so many different colors, and the thought of wrapping up all those loose ends seems so tedious. It's not as bad as it looks, right? :)

So beautiful and so colorful. The white borders really sets everything off.

Ellen said...

Nice job, now to sew in all those ends.... you dog is adorable.

Beautiful! Everyone crochets differently, but it is much easier if you work the 'ends' in when you add another color or as you finish a block. If you work over the ends as you change colors, then you will only have one end (the last color) to work in when you finiah a block. This end can be worked in when you join blocks. That's the way I finish my blocks but you do what is easiest for you.

How lovely! Nothing more classic than a lovely granny square throw and a dog!

Karen said...

Your blanket is gorgeous! Based on how happy your dog looks it must be comfy too.

Amy said...

love the granny squares, and the dog.

Kim said...

Beautiful! I forgot how to crochet when I was pg with my fourth child! It never came back.

Hazel said...

That blanket looks gorgeous, I like the colours you have used in it...

Though I don't envy cleaning up all those ends :(

Denise said...

Your blanket looks cosy especially with the little dog snuggled in it.

Toocutedobs said...

Ummm, I crochet the ends right back into the blanket as I go. You just line the end up with thr row you are working on and crochet over it. This way when you are done, you are done!

Marie/Underground Crafter said...

Really nice! And your dog is cute, too.
