I made this blanket for my boyfriend as a birthday present. His birthday was a week ago, but I actually gave it to him last year. It just took me that long to put up! Since he's 6'4, a lot of blankets don't actually fully cover him up, so I made him a gigantic cubs blanket. As a sox fan, this was VERY tough!

You can't really tell in the picture, but the red stripes at each end are each a couple rows where I alternated front-post double crochet and back-post double crochet. The intent was to make it look like baseball stitching, which it only does a little bit  Undecided He was really happy with it though so I'm happy!

My camera charger is hiding from me right now, so I just have a crappy cell phone picture. When I find it, I'll put up a better one. Thanks for looking!!
