 I agree with everyone else, this is really beautiful! I was just wondering how big it is, what are the dimensions?

So fun to see one of these again. It was so common to crochet such afghans out of left over yarn earlier, I remember my grandmother having several. I would have loved having one myself, as these are the most comfortable afghans there are. With a top sheet underneath, it is so comfy for when it's quite warm, instead of an ordinary bed blanket or duvet. The way crochet or knit blankets softly wraps around you, is just so comfy and cosy! I'd love to see a modern version inspired by these too, using a simple, geometric pattern and a few matching colors instead of scrap yarn, e.g. taupe/brown with blues or grays, and with a simple, straight trim along the edge. And with a large size rather than just as a throw! Could be real beautiful and comfy!

A great way to recycle all those oddments of wool that are hanging around..... You could also buy hand knitted things in Charity shops and un-pick them..... Make one for all the elderly people you know and help them save on thier heating bills.

Can anyone say aproximately how large a size J is in milimeters? Where I come from they are numbered 1, 2, 3 and so on.

good question! needle conversion is tricky if you don't know where the pattern is from. for this afghan J is 5.75 or 6.00mm.
I think that's a size 4 in UK, going by this chart:

It's very pretty! I was curious how the joining would turn out and i was quite surprised! You did a beautiful job joining and the orange yarn for joining really makes it sharp and stand out. I really love this; nice work!
