Johnny Cash Blanket

Well, my oldest son left for Marine Boot Camp on Mother's Day (sigh). He plans on being in the reserves until he graduates college. A while back he drew this picture of Johnny Cash. We all liked it so much that I had it framed. Recently, I saw some crochet portrait afghans that other people had made so I thought I'd give it a try with this picture. I uploaded the drawing on knitpro:
This site will make any picture into a graph then you can cross stitch, needle point, crochet---whatever! The blanket is not perfect--but it was my first attempt, and more importantly, kept me busy the first 2 weeks he was gone.
