Goomba Afghan - crocheted by LunarJadeStyles Goomba Afghan - crocheted by LunarJadeStyles
It took me forever to make this guy! I love the way he turned out though. I kept working on him on and off since last summer.
I love the result though that I'm already working on another afghan.

*edit* Forgot to mention he measures roughly 72" by 73".

Just as a side note, I do take commissions on crocheted blankets. Pixel blankets vary in the amount of time to make depending on size and time I have available so if you want one in a certain time frame be sure to mention that. Also be aware that for the most part it is at least a two month project. You can either send me a note, email at lunarjadestyles@gmail.com or for other items check out my Etsy shop here: www.lunarjadestyles.etsy.com


Special Note: I sent this item into Desert Bus for Hope 4 (2010) and it auctioned off for $4300!
All of the money made in this auction goes to Desert Bus for Hope which then in turn (when they finish their charity run) gets donated to Child's Play.

Please check out both of these.

I do take blanket commissions. Price depends usually on the image and size. So if you're ever interested send me a note. It takes about six months to construct this one, though I ask usually for about eight months now cause I've got college classes at the moment.

What you see there is an assembly of 228 granny squares and over a hundred hours of making and connecting them.

Thank you. I have another one of a mushroom on the go that I'm hoping I'll finally get to finish before my Christmas holidays are up. College makes crafting so much harder to accomplish.

That is nothing less than the most epic blanket ever. If you made a second one and put it on e-bay, you probably wouldn't have to worry about money for a couple of months.
