So while I am in bed last night trying to get to sleep, my smart-elic husband sees this last night and asks "Can you make this?"

 
Now don't get me wrong, I know he is a HUGE Mario fan, have seen this a few times, just did not think he would want one. I said "Yes" and went back to trying to sleep. I then hear him say, "Right, but it would probably take a year." OH HO! The gauntlet has been thrown down, he will have this for Valentine's Day.
 
I got up this morning and searched for a pattern I really liked that gave me the block counts.  I found a WONDERFUL one at Wildflower Sunshine.  I know I could of done it myself, but I just have not felt that great the past few days and really want this done in 3 weeks.   For all the directions click here.
 


I am using an I hook (5.5 MM) and doing the typical three row granny square.  Mine are coming out 4 inches square.  That will make my afghan 72" x 56" before sewing together and adding a border. 
 
I have the red blocks already done and in a Ziploc bag, on to the black ones!  I will keep the blog posted on the progress.  Did I mention I have the song stuck in my head?
