I've been absent from here for a really long time, though I have still been crafting. Recently I made a blanket for my guy, who is a big fan of the Coen brothers.



I was able to use the charts from Andrea Rangel's "The Dude" pattern on ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-dude). It saved me so much time! I just made it out of some acrylic yarn I got on sale, but I know that it needed to be machine washable.

With any luck you guys will be seeing more of me, and soon!

I don't know these brothers either but I like your blanket. Did you make it by hand or with a machine? Either way, great job!

Thanks everyone! I made this by hand, and it took a few weeks, and pretty much ate all of the free time I had in January. The Coen brothers are the guys that have brought us such films as "The Big Lebowski", "Fargo", and "Raising Arizona". This is a picture from "The Big Lebowski" of the sweater that inspired this blanket.
