While I was making my Scrabble afghan at work last year, my supervisor suggested I make a pink and white dog blanket for her princess, Sasha, when I came back in March.  Well, it's March.  So after looking at patterns, I decided to make Laura Lynn's Chromium Star blanket that I found on ravelry.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chromium-star-blanket
While I was making Sasha's, my roommate suggested I make a matching blue one for our supervisor's other dog, Sully.  So I started them on Friday, finished them yesterday, and gave them today.  She loved them and was completely surprised.  She kept saying "thank you" and "I'm speechless."  She also said that they were too pretty for the dogs and might just keep them on the couch where the dogs don't go.   Smiley

I love how the varigated yarn looks in these.

About how much yarn did each one take (I'm wondering if I can stash bust with this pattern)?

For the pink, I used less than one full 7 oz skein of Simply Soft Plum Wine.  I had two skeins of the multi color, but I'm not sure how much was in each skein.

For the blue, I used almost a whole 5 oz skein Red Heart Soft Light Blue and almost two full 5 oz skeins of Red Heart Super Saver Shaded Dusk.

I'm not sure how much Simply Soft White I used for each blanket, but together I probably used between one and a half and one and three-quarters 7 oz skeins.

I hope this helps!

Beautiful!  I've been working on a purple-themed starghan with this same pattern.  I really like how yours turned out  Smiley
