Hello! It's been quite a while since I've posted anything but that is because I have been working on this blanket for a month or so. I'm still quite a newbie at knitting, so I'm pretty proud of this blanket. I made it for my mom and she loves it Smiley





thanks for looking~!

thank you Smiley

I assembled it rather hastily because I was so anxious to finish  Roll Eyes
all I did was put all of the sqaures next to each other and use a darning needle to stitch them together.
