I knitted an awesome Super Mario blanket that I designed on photoshop for my brother. I started in November 2010 and just finished it today. I probably spent 40 hours of man-work on it.

I'm so excited to share it

Size comparison to me:

I wish I had that much patience! Is it in a mirror view, or did you intend for all the lettering to read backwards?

Thanks everyone Smiley


Ha, I was hoping no one would notice that it's mirror image! It was a total accident. I was already too far in to go back and fix it!
I think it's still cool, though.
