This is just amazing! I want to try i t! So does that mean you change the colors each time the color changes in the pattern?

Thanks for your respond, and thanks for sharing your e-mail address for contact. I haven't been to this site for a while, but I am still very interested for a good advice. I do crochet a lot and I understand patterns and graphs. I do understand how to change color, but what I'd like to know is if you cross the strings of yarn before you change the color, what side of the blanket do you drop the yarn you are finished working with, and all the small things of achieving the look of the blanket. On the end, I'd like to know what is the secret of achieving the double side look to it. Have you ever conceder making youtube tutorial, because I know that it will be the best technic ever available to so many of us. Thank you kindly in advance
P.S. Your work in did is very special, and I'm looking forward for your guidance because it is the best so far.

Hi there, 
I have never seen anythanything more beautiful then your dragon blanket. It is just fenomenal. 
I wish if I can get some how in touch with you to ask you some details about the graph crocheting. I hope you have blog or ttutorials and I truly hope that you won't mind sharing some of the technics you are using. 
Once again, congrats on the price you won in Utah, I have no doubt that you can win any challenge any were with it. 
Thanks for making such a beautiful blanket.

I've messed around with a blog once or twice, but I never really did anything with it.  As for the technique I used I'd be happy to share, I didn't really think what I was doing was all that original at first, but I haven't been able to find anything like what I do in crochet.  I have a picture of an in progress set for this project in my gallery if you want to see how I go about doing this, and if you want more details feel free to email me at jets_million@yahoo.com

This piece is amazing, I am working on an idea where each X is a one round granny square, haven't finished my first piece though.

After playing with it a bit, a crochet join seems to be most aesthetically pleasing. The project got put on hold for a few months , have others that need to be done faster. So yes each piece separately then crochet them together, not sure yet if I prefer single or slip for the join yet.

Okay, I've been thinking about this idea a lot lately. You plan to make all the granny squares separately and then sew/crochet them together?

That...sounds like a nightmare. I hope the end result will be amazing, but the idea of weaving in all those loose ends...Whoa. I wish you luck! Are you planning on a simple and small thing, say a scarf, or grabbing the bull by the horns and jumping in for something like an afghan?

The plan is a wall hanging, about 1500 pieces, but to preserve sanity I am going to knot trim short and then back the finished piece , no weaving!

It's DOUBLE-SIDED???? THAT IS FANTASTIC!!!

I can't imagine the kind of patience, and hard work that went into that. Not to mention the sheer amount of yarn.

I salue you, and dub thee a Master of thy Craft.

Or is it Mistress? (And why does that word still have so many negative connotations?)

Tunisian crochet takes awhile for me, so, keeping your place and staying patient must have been difficult.
