The YOYO Blanket

Well finally got around to taking pictures of my ongoing YoYo project. Whenever I crochet or knit something I save the small balls of the acrylic yarn to make YoYo's (easy to make, chain 4 and slip to form a ring, chain 3 and then do 15 Double crochets in the ring, slip together and bind off weave in ends.) I save them in old Popcorn containers and Coffee containers, even zip lock baggies...until I have a good size stash of various colors and then...

You start attaching them together in rows. It looks complicated and in fact I just learned this week on how to attach, until then I just made the yoyo's. I was given instructions over the phone so it's pretty easy. This is a close up picture of the one I have started this week

This picture shows a little more of the afghan... It has 10 completed rows so far, 16 YoYo's in each row. I think it really should have 20 YoYo's in a row but I refuse to rip it apart, instead I am thinking about adding a couple rows up the side, I think it will work.
