Crochet Update

I've really been cruising on the crochet project I first debuted a couple of weeks ago. You may be surprised by the size of the piece already and I haven't been posting regular updates about it. When I knitted my afghan a couple of years ago, the project took me something like 15 weeks. But this crocheted afghan has been moving so much quicker because there are so fewer stitches involved. 

I've really enjoyed making this blanket and although I'd love to gift it to someone, I want to keep it for myself! Now that I know how easy it is I may just be able to make more to sell or to make as gifts in the future. Crochet is not exactly a cheap hobby. The entire blanket has six skeins of yarn which in total cost me $35. Even though you can buy nice blankets for that or cheaper, it's something that was handmade by me and gave me great joy while doing it.
