I'm so excited about this blanket!  I've been interested in astronomy for a while now, and during an intense design session, this was the first idea I had, and it's my favourite of everything I came up with during that time!



I used about 2670 yards of Caron Simply Soft and it took me about four days to make (what can I say? I was excited to see how it turned out!)

I love it so much that it's going to be hard to part with it (but alas, I must!).  I'm thinking about adjusting the size up to king size and make one for my bed!  (I have a queen-sized bed, but I sleep with a lot of pillows.  Like... a *lot* of pillows. lol)

Thanks!  There was much debate here about that.  It's rather small to be useful to two adults, though, so... bigger version it is! Grin
