Crochet blankets

I thought I'd post a few pages/patterns I like, and have my eye on for my next project:

Waldo's Puzzle
Simply Beautiful Afghan
Thermal Stitch Afghan

I found these on Ravelry a site I love. Free patterns for everyone.   I just thought these were very pretty, and not too hard for a beginning crocheter.

FINALLY GOT ON IT

I've finally been getting back into my needle crafts. Thanks to my mother-in-law who showed me how to crochet a granny square, I've begun (and gotten pretty far) on my blanket! I'm making it for my toddler, who asks me every five minutes "Is my blanket done yet?!?"
As you can see I'm working away. Once I get it to the size I want (probably another 10 rounds) I'm going to do a ruffled edge...once I figure out how to to that. Thanks to www.youtube.com I shouldn't have too much trouble. I'm really quite proud that I've stuck to this one. I have so many WIP's around my house.
I've been on www.ravelry.com and looking at all the fun squares I can make after this. I'm inspired!
