Wow, like everyone else has said - that looks amazing! The sepia was a perfect choice - it truly enhanced the picture! I don't know how you did it - but I did some crochet back in the day and I know this has to have taken forever and more patience than I could ever find!!!
You have got to answer back and tell us what she thought!!! That has got to be the best present she has ever gotten!!!!

Thanks everyone!  It was a very long going and tedious blanket with all the colour changes, but soooooo worth it!!  Its a pretty easy concept, no graphs!  But I can't take credit for that part. I sent a pic to www.crochetbynumbers.com and he sent me the pattern for this.

I actually made it for Christmas for my Mom and I tried so hard to get it done.  I only had 3 weeks so I had a lot of late nights! But no matter what I tried I couldn't get it done. Both faces were there, I just really had the border to do, a couple more rows too, so I decided to give it to her anyways, and tell her I was taking it home to finish it.  Well, when I went to leave she said "No, you don't need this yet" lol she wouldn't let me take it!!!!  My Aunt cried and my Mom just loved it.  So I finally got it back about 1 week later and finished it up.  Shes going to hang it I crocheted a loop into the top so it can easily hang but easily be taken down for a quick cuddle.

Thanks again everyone!!

I cannot imagine a cooler, more meaningful present. You are a thoughtful daughter and a talented crocheter (if that's a word).
