This blanket took me 3 years to finish--partly because it was boring to crochet, so I would put it away for months and mainly only worked on it in the winter when I could stand to have it on my lap. It weighs about 6 pounds, and drapes nicely on a twin size bed. I was going to make it fit my queen size bed, but I really wanted to get this completed. This is my last blanket ever!

I used Bernat Softee Chunky in off white, and Red Heart Zoomy for the pastels. It is very warm, I have to admit.

That blanket is very neat. I love the little baubles and the pretty pastels make it nice and whimsical. Congratulations on finally finishing it!

It is very pretty. I have no patience for crochet or knitting but I admire yarnies a ton. I can tell you this would have taken me a lot longer than 3 years. Great job!

Very pretty but with all those baubles I can see why it took so long  Smiley
