The Yellow Blanket

I've been working on the Double Diamond baby afghan pattern by Bernat. I used worsted weight yarn and a size I hook to increase the size of my squares. 

This is for my nephew, Josey. He asked for a yellow afghan for Christmas, but I didn't have time to get one done. Instead, I sent him a car pillow and a promise that a yellow afghan would be following. My sister-in-law, who is good at making me feel guilty..LOL..let me know he's been waiting patiently for his afghan. Thankfully, I started this afghan before she said that, so I felt like I was slightly ahead of the game. 

Anyway, I actually "finished" it, but then I measured it. It was only 42" x 42" and Josey is already 46" tall. So, that's not going to work. I am currently working on some "afghan extensions" to increase the length to at least 52", more if I have enough yarn. I will post more pics when I am done.
