The Great Freeform Crocheted Afghan Project

I am crocheting an afghan for my church's (First Unitarian Universalist Church of Lubbock) upcoming charity auction. The afghan is being done in freeform crochet.

(For those of you who can't remember the freeform crocheted afghan I made for my mother-in-law for Christmas, check it out here.)

Anyhow, even though this afghan still has a long way to go, I want to show you the progress of its growth.

This is so cool! I am amazed how much quicker crochet is from knitting, but having never learned how to do really do anything proper in crochet all I ever do is very plain, and make it up as I go along. -- I haven't figured out a way to fix mistakes in crochet either. In knitting, you'd just pull the stitch, and ladder down to the place that needed repair, but since crochet goes across, fixing it doesn't seem possible. -- But free form, with lots of colors and shapes, now that would be fun. I'm looking forward to seeing how you'll get it to straighten out and have square corners in the end, the way you did w. your mother in law's. Thanks for the idea!
