Crochet Finished Object: the Chain Reaction Afghan!

Done at last!

Here are all the squares, joined together:

And here's a slightly worse picture, but it shows the border a little border (oh, that border! I thought it'd be the death of me! Three different balls of yarn, and I had to switch between them every few stitches!):
It's certainly an eclectic project, but it was fun to try so many different techniques, and as soon as it was done, Bess promptly dragged it up to her room and she's been sleeping under it every night since. So, the customer is happy. :)

Close-up shots of individual squares can be seen, here, here, here, and here. If you want to try the pattern yourself, it's available for free on Interweave's site here.

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica snell

The stained glass panel is now my favorite. Gorgeous. I love that Bess claimed it immediately.

Wow, Jess--this is truly magnificent. It's been fun to watch your progress on this project. The end result is so exuberantly colorful and interesting to look at. NICELY done! It's really a treasure.
