Tonight I finally finished my blanket. This colossal giant has taken 3 months, and 4 giant balls of rainbow boucle to complete, but it's finally done. Now to enjoy all my hard work.

It's approximately the size of my queen size bed. In other words, it's huge! I was going bonkers towards the end, it took so long to get around each side. I thought I was never going to finish.


Here's a better look at the colors.


While I like the end result, I don't know if I'm ready to take on another project like this anytime soon! If you'd like to read more about it, please visit my blog: http://bitsofbruce.wordpress.com

C&C Welcome. Thanks for looking!

Great Job!  I love big granny squares  Grin

Don't give up on those larger projects....next time, switch colors each row. That will keep it from feeling like forever on the longest rows.  Plus you end up with a great blanket that looks like a big crayon box.  

Love the muted colors you used here, tho.  Looks great with the color scheme of the room  Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

Thanks for the tip. If I'm ever brave enough to tackle this again, I'll definitely try switching colors.

All yellow? Wow! Yeah, it might drive you a bit batty at the end. But you'll feel great once it's done!

Thanks! I attribute that to the pattern. Here's what I used, except I didn't stop where they suggested. Instead, I kept going until I was happy with the size.   Pattern:  soft and wonderful from Leisure Arts Our Best Baby Afghans, 1996.
