Counting stitches, or how the first official square turned out.

Steve and I spent a few hours the other night planning my Harry Potter themed afghan and creating some more solid patterns. I also spent a good chunk of change on yarns to get me started. The last two nights I have spent crocheting my first full-sized usable square (while watching The Vampire Diaries and Doctor Who). Here are the results:

I am using a size G hook with readily available worsted weight yarn. The colors for this square are Antique Teal and Black. The square is 48 stitches long and 48 rows. I can see some tiny imperfections that I didn't catch while doing the work, but it's a definite improvement from my test square. I'm really quite pleased. Can you guess the subject of my next square?
