Can't stop


Tada! Here is the Giant Granny Square blanket I've been working on for my brother. I'm terrible at keeping gift secrets and he was in town for Thanksgiving, so I had to tell him. He doesn't get it til Christmas though -I'm wrapping it and putting it under the tree 
- ACT SURPRISED DANNY!! 
It's almost finished, I want to end it in black yarn, since I started with black.
I can't stop crocheting, I love it, but my little fingers are sore! 
I love the blanket above by the happy apple! She started in for her baby in her belly! So sweet! I really like the colors she picked! And below is Corrina Darling's very pretty crocheted star garland! I can't wait to make some! She found the star tutorial here.
Have you all been crocheting? Or are you stuck on a specific craft?

I love your blanket for your brother...and your stars look great too!!!

I still haven't finished my giant granny due to needing to do the edging and it being way too hot here for me to feel like crocheting with a large blanket over me!;) http://www.paisleyjade.com/2009/07/granny-square-blankey-update.html

I have been doing a few crochet stars though and they are really addictive!!

I am still working on an afghan for a friend and I so enjoy it but feel like it will never get finished. This is my first afghan and I honestly had no idea how much time goes into one. It makes me sad when I see them being sold so cheap at thrift stores. It makes me want to buy them all up!!

Oh... I love those crocheted stars so much!! I want to try those next!!
