Shhh don't tell dad

Here is the inprogress of the graph afghan I am working on. I am actually past this point now with the N and Y complete I am now working on the Giants portion that will run down the side. It should be done oh in about a month or so lol. It's fun making these but really boring in 2 colors so it's slow going.

Thanks I know he'll LOVE IT
I did this one in sc as for the size I wanted I didn't have a tunisian hook in the right size to do tunisian so I decided to do sc. I found when doing sc graph afghans its really important how you change colors. Like here if I was on the last sc of blue before I changed to white I would insert hook in last blue sc, then yo pull up a loop, then yo in white and pull through both loops on hook so the change is made hen finishing off the final blue sc. BUT, then when I go to do the first sc in white I would see liek a little tail or strip of yarn coming up, it was important I placed my hook under this little piece and then into the next sc, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through both loops on hook. It helped round out edges and keep things lined up.
