The living room blanket is done! It's not (and probably never will be) blocked as the second I sewed in the last end, it was taken over by three little kids. It will definitely be a used (and loved) blanket and for that, I am thrilled.
The free pattern is here. I changed the colors a bit and if I were to make this blanket again, I would do my own edging (but in this case, I realized that after two completed border rows, so decided against it). Progress posts here, here and here. Yarn is Vanna's Choice in (order as used) Rust, Chocolate, Brick, Mustard, Silver Grey, Pink, Purple, Dusty Blue, Antique Rose, Pea Green, Olive and Sapphire.
And now...I'm working on a couple small projects, but also have started another blanket for our living room. What do you think of these four colors together?
