I was so exctied to take a photo this morning that I did not care all that much that it was 7 AM on a winter morning, and I have a north facing house, so morning sun is at a bit of a premium. But anyhow, here it is sitting on the love seat in Mike's home office.
This is a super warm and very colorful blanket. There are bits and pieces of lots of my projects in this blanket, including some super bright ones from Erin's graduation blanket...lol. Am very pleased with this super stash buster. There is no written pattern for this. I made 192 three round/three color squares and attached them via a super secure join as you go method from a book called Crochet (I used that pattern to make Amelia's baby blanket), added a border of two rounds of one color/one round of Midnight around those, seven rounds of granny stitch (the 7th of which is the color of the border) and added Edie Eckman's Border 93 as a finish.
(For my own records, colors used are white, aster, dark brown, cream, bottle, midnight, cloud blue, lemon, raspberry, apricot, khaki, copper, sherbet, walnut, plum, teal, graphite, mocha, meadow, grape, turquoise, pale rose, saffron, bluebell, pomegranate, magenta, sunshine, green, claret, candyfloss, shrimp, lavender, silver, parchment, soft peach, fondant, lipstick, jaffa, bright green, citron, violet, denim, spring green, clematis, camel, aspen, wisteria, petrol, gold, stone, spice, lime, storm blue, tomato, parma violet, sage, duck egg, pistachio, cypress, lobelia, kelly green, fuchsia purple, boysenberry, empire, mushroom... 65 colors).

And good news today... I participated in DixieSamplar's Spring Hop Exchange on FB. My exchange arrived safely in Arkansas today. So glad my recipient is pleased with it and the extra goodies. Love making these, but shipping in US is almost $19... don't plan on doing this very often 😂
