This project began a month ago, and I have to have it done my Saturday. Ordinarily this would not be enough time, but I'm using a thick yarn and a giant hook so it's moving along nicely. The blanket's made with a v-stitch and some contemporary neutral colors. This Hometown USA yarn by Lion Brand is soooo soft and fairly heavy that my bro-in-law and his new bride will be a cozy and warm.
.......So I finished it! And on time too!!! Woohoo! I wish I would have measured it before I gave it to them, but it was huge. In the pic, it's lying sideways on a queen size bed so maybe that gives you an idea.
I think it turned out beautiful and my brother-in-law did a pretty good job of pretending he liked it ;-)
