Crochet Blanket

Do you all remember when I posted this?

Well, I finally finished! I was hoping to be done with it at the end of March, but it just got too hot to sit under while working on it. I put it away for the rest of spring and summer. I pulled it back out a couple of weeks ago while we were having a cold spell and was able to finish it.

So, what do you think? I am going to be starting some new crochet projects here soon. I have some Christmas gifts to make!
