I often lurk here but never seem to finish projects and get to post them, so I am absolutely thrilled that I have FINALLY finished my epic saga of making my boyfriend a blanket and get to share it with you all!
My friends and I like board games and a few years ago we got into Settlers of Catan (http://www.catan.com/) and I thought I would make my boyfriend a blanket. I have no idea what possessed me, since while I do love crafting, I was going back to school for nursing and really, really, really could not be counted on to finish a project.
Anyway, it was done with single crochet since this is my second crochet project ever and when I started (almost 2 years ago) I didn't actually know how to make any other crochet stitches haha.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
This is the whole blanket as it is now. I still have to weave in the ends, and I have plans for an additional 12 blue water tiles to put on four sides to make it more rectangular. But, I REALLY wanted him to see it finally, and I promised he'd get it in time for Christmas!
This is the blanket on our bed with our dog Frisket. Isn't he cute?

A trial run of how the colours worked out next to each other. I liked it!
Now all I need to do is make oversized village and town pieces and miniature scarves that pretend to be roads. That works, right?
Questions/comments are definitely welcome!
