This is my first big project, and blanket (that I've finished) so I'm really happy.
Story:  I've had a lot of free time over the past week so I decided to make a blanket.  I'm going to give it to my mother for Mother's day.   She has seen me work on it, but I don't think I've given her enough evidence to believe it's actually for her. 



There's 30 rows in all, using a granny square pattern.  Purple 10, white 7, black 2, blue 2, green 3, and grey 6.  I tried to use all all my left over yarn from previous projects.  Color order  was random.   
(I might continue it another day, but for now I like it.)

Thanks, I used a I/9 5.50mm hook.  It was the reccommened hook size for the yarn.
