Fridays are for FINISHED Crochet!

yarma 
Yes, it is finished!  I've trimmed the ends, it's been inspected and approved by the Department of Crochet Inspection and it's ready to wrap.  The blanket is wonderfully soft and drapey and I couldn't be more happy with it.  The finished size is 58 inches wide by 80 inches long - big enough for the recipient to use even when he's all grown up.  I used 19 skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh DK in 18 colors (I used two skeins of Tart because red is the recipient's favorite color).  Each color was used twice with only a little bit left over.  My starting chain was 213 chain things long.  All the details, including hook size and colors are on my Ravelry project page.  (I just found out how to make project pages accessible to non-Ravelers, so even if you aren't a member, feel free to click!)  It feels good to have this rather huge project all finished up.  Maybe I should get back to work on The Babette now?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I hope your Christmas projects are going quickly!

I'm not usually a fan of crocheted blankets, though I love a crocheted doily and have made many. This blanket, however, is just amazing. It is beautiful. The colors are majestic. Congratulations on getting it done with time to spare!

Absolutely lovely! You've only shown snippets as you've made progress and I've been wondering for quite awhile what the whole thing will look like. It's terrific.

And now that you mention it, I'd love to see the Babette!

That is beautiful! (And Max looks beautiful on it, too -- I hope the recipient doesn't object to the added bonus of pet hair.) You did a fabulous job -- many congratulations!

So pretty! The overall effect of all the colors is very nice.

I may have to dig out my crochet hooks...
