I am a knitter, but.. my daughter has got me hooked on this new web site called Pinterest.com If you follow me, I'd love to follow you back. It is sort of like twitter, but in pictures. You can lose yourself for hours and hours.

I found this the other day, and want to share it. The only thing I would change is that every square has the same number of pegs, and as everyone with kids knows, each lego has different numbers of pegs. My daughter crochets, but doesn't knit, so I was hoping that I might get her to try making this one herself with a little help.

If anyone tries it, let me know what you think, or if you make changes, please let me know. Also, I think I'd change the gray/neutral to a yellow.

I have been hearing a lot about Pinterest. I am too afraid to go look. I have trouble enough with this forum.

Love the blankie!

I know what you mean about pinterest--have spent too many hours there in the last few days! So many ideas! Still trying to figure it all out!

I love the lego afghan, I want to make one for Project Linus. But, do you think it would still look ok if I used many different colors? Not just the lego colors? I have lots of leftovers to use up.
ps I just found lego colors, I never knew

I think you could and should use any color you want to. Who knows, maybe Lego will see your version and add more colors to their own!

How hard do you all think it would be to try and KNIT this afghan?

Opinions?

Thinking about it, it might be easier to knit it than crochet it. Only thinking about it, it might not be as thick.

As long as you can make a bobble in the right place, I'd think it could be knitted. My son would probably love this--he's 22 now, but when he was little, we spent hours & hours playing with LEGOs.

How would a person make these bobbles?
