Crochet-Giant Granny Square Afghan finished!

Yes, I have finished it!  Started July 4th weekend and it was here and there, whenver I had some time.

I used wool and an H hook size. 

Now it is resting in the family room on the wing chair ready for snuggling up this winter.

  I wasn't sure what border I wanted to trim it with, so that took me a while to decide on.  I'm crocheting away and not sure if the border was exactly growing on me, it was curling up...but once I was done and blocked it, I am very happy with the way it turned out. 
I took some photos outside on the porch so I could get the natural light, and after all this work, yes I took every possible angle I could think of to photograph it.
Please disregard the pinecones that were not swept up, I've been crocheting, not cleaning.

And you thought I was kidding when I said I photographed every possible way I could think of...but when you have had something on your lap for that many months...you want some mileage out of it.

I just love the scrappy colors each row is a different color and yes I have lots of yarn left over for more probjects to follow.

This is the book I found my border out of, it's #127.  This is an awesome book, great diagrams and instructions and a fantastic reference book
ok, I'm done, hope that wasn't too painful for you, thanks for letting me obsess a little over this. 
Blessings, Michelle

Brilliant! I really love the fringe. I thought they were bobbles first up. The colours are gorgeous. Enjoy it as the weather gets colder.

Your granny square is fabulous, and I love that border! I'm making a bright ripple blanket right now, but one of these days I want to make a granny like yours. Enjoy it this winter!
