I started this thing back in August, but between one thing and another I didn't get it finished until a few days ago. It came out beautifully, though.

There are 13 colors in this blanket. Each row is a different color and each row is arranged in a specific sequence. The blanket is backed with fabric to help distribute heat more evenly and to give it a tamer flip-side for when all the crazy color combinations drive my boyfriend insane.






ETA: Edited to fix messed up pictures. Photobucket! *shakes fist*

Beautiful, gorgeous! I love how you put the backing on it too--keeps your toes from poking through!

Love your blanket - unique and clever color placement - you should be a quilter! I like that you put a back on it too - like previously posted, keeps your toes from poking through. Nice job.  Smiley

Heck, it was worth the wait!  I love the color gradation, and the diagonal centers mix the colors up enough but are still orderly.

Wow, great work and bless you for willingly taking on a project that involved weaving in that many ends! I hate weaving in ends, it makes for a lot of single color projects at my house Wink
