I started this blanket in June 2010 according to ravelry, though I could have sword I had started it that August. At any rate, at the naive age of 17 I thought I could make the thing by October 31 for my boyfriend for our 1st anniversary. Clearly, that didn't happen. I've been working on it off and on, but finally gave a last seaming push this past weekend.
Gave it to my boyfriend on the 2nd. He absolutely adores it! He said it's the perfect warm but still cool blanket when he sleeps.  Grin

Here one of my best friends and I (I'm the one on the right) hold the blanket up because there's no place in my dorm to lay the whole thing out.  Tongue

I'm not surprised it took a while, it's HUGE! I love the design, and love the fact you went for a more delicate design for the squares rather than just going for solids.
