I finished it! It is posted HERE at KH under Whatcha Knitting. Thanks for asking! It looks kinda wonky in the photos because I had it stretched out on the carpet...it was 4th of July, the grandchildren were crawling all over it...it was hot...and I just wanted to get the photos done. Little Laila was waiting to get her hands on it and take it home! I got some cute photos of her posing on it...but her Momma (my DD) would kill me if I posted Laila's photo on the internet. I was tempted... ...but came to my senses!

Mulderknitter, ah yes, those notorious winds! There were times when I worked dwtn Mpls and the wind tunnel effect made walking downright difficult. (And they claim Chicago's the windy city!) Batten down the hatches!

Artlady....oops, sorry I missed your post....but all I can say is WOW!!!! How fun!!! Fabulous colors and stitch patterns. When I saw the ind sqs I wasn't sure how to picture them being joined w/o 'frames' but this is amazing! My sis does very detailed quilts and this reminds me of her work. (BTW, I can appreciate your daughter not wanting Laila's image on the web but I'm sure she's one very thrilled little girl.)

As usual, another terrific FO. I still have some misc acrylics so might just have to consider a laprobe along the lines of your crazy quilt!

That's just great looking! I'm going to have to get around to using some of my stash and this is an excellent idea!

VictoiseC, thanks! The squares are quick work and fun to do if you need a small project you can take with (in car, on bus, etc). With so many stitch pattern...and yarn!.... options it makes for nearly endless possibilities.

Thanks, Teeka! I'm sure your next effort will turn out fabulous. As I mentioned, I did a baby blanket with alphabet sqs about a year and half ago and it was nothing like I envisioned at the end due to gauge issues. Working on so many sweaters in the interim constantly reminded me how relevant that part of the process is.

Hope you'll post pics of your next afghan.

Thanks, Jaxhil! I orig planned to donate the piece to a local nursing home OR forward it to my folks back in the Midwest. But the longer it's in sight in my LR the more I'm not wanting to part with it. (I already have several afghans so not something I need.) Whereas I normally work with more subtle, muted tones there IS something very cheery and fun about this.
