I cannot believe this only took 8 days! You're a crocheting superstar!

Bought the pattern this weekend, started it this afternoon at work, and I'm currently about halfway through the first pattern repeat. I've just got to say, you did an AWESOME job writing up a clear, easy to follow, super fast pattern! I can't wait to see how mine turns out. Thank you!

Unfortunately, work has gotten in the way of this. I also had to frog a solid NINE ROWS and redo them, because I took it to the movies and skipped a stitch way the heck back there... Plus I made it wider, because I like ginormous blankets that I can bundle up in with room to spare... So it's taking a LOT longer than your eight days, LOL!

BUT!!! I am pleased to report that I've passed the halfway point! As I type this I'm five rows from completing my fourth pattern repeat, which will be 2/3 of the blanket done. When finished, it should be close to 6 feet square. Smiley

My work laptop is ancient and doesn't like my phone, so I can't post a pic right now, but I will as soon as it's finished! Thanks again!

Finished the body of the blanket! Waiting until Monday to put on the border, because I'm a moron and left the black yarn for the border sitting at the office... but I should have it finished by Tuesday, making it six weeks from start to finish. Nowhere near as impressive as eight days, but mine wound up being king-sized, so I'm happy with it. Smiley Thanks again for the pattern, it's gorgeous!

This is absolutely amazing. I love the look of it! I can't believe you accomplished that during just a demo!

While I'm waiting for Hobby Lobby to get more yellow I Love This Yarn in stock (two months and counting...), I decided to start on a baby version of this. It's alternating rows of scrap yarn in assorted pastel colors with rows of white, and it'll have a white border. If I have enough of my scraps to do it, I'm thinking two rows of color, two rows of white. Planning to start it this afternoon, and donate it to our local NICU when I finish it. Smiley
