Hey friends!

I had a huge stash of mismatched variegated yarn piled up in my craft closet so I decided - hey! lets make the world's ugliest blanket!

After a few months off and on, it is finally complete Smiley please excuse the unmade bed and iPhone photos (couldn't resist instagramming...)

It's just about Queen-sized - Double Crochet - worsted weight yarn for the most part Smiley





and a close up of some stitches:



Such a simple, mindless project - very relaxing! My sister has already placed an "order" for a "wedding version" for her and her soon-to-be hubby Wink

I might also do some calculations to find out exactly how many stitches there are in this blanket Cheesy

oh my goodness i feel your pain! by the end, this thing was a BEAST to flip around when i finished a row... i was lugging it around in a rather large tote in the beginning but then it got too big for that haha
