I started crocheting last year and this afghan was my first project.
Very nice for a newbie. I've been crochet for about about 11 years (seriously for the past 7) and granny squares and afghans are the only things I've stayed away from. I'm definitely going to give it a try this year.
This is a beautiful afghan. You should be so proud that your first project turned out so well. I would like to know the size though. I would like to see your next work as well.
