Crocheted throw, work in progress

This is my granny square throw so far. It may look like it's finished, but it's not:-) I made two rows of three “giant” blocks each, and I think I need four or five rows to cover the whole bed... This is the result of half a year of crocheting, so, maybe, Christmas 2011...

If I ever make another throw, I'll probably use a different hook size. This one is made with a 2,5 mm crochet hook. And I know now that it takes ages with such a small hook :-) I really love this example of giant granny squares in really thick yarn, it looks so cozy! (scroll down for a better image).

It's a beautiful blanket. I'm always amazed that huge piles of granny squares which you think will make a lovely snuggly blanket, end up the size of a tea towel when they are all sewn together! Of course the end result is always worth it :o)

Sue, thanks! Yes, it's slow work.. Next time I'll definitely use a bigger crochet hook :-)
