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!
