63 Squares Crochet Along. It's done! It's a lovely, warm, and huge blanket! I finished my 63 Squares Crochet Along project! Whoop!

The first photo shows all 63 squares laid out on the floor in the order shown in the pattern book (taken Thursday afternoon). The other photos were taken yesterday mid-afternoon after all squares were joined but before I had finished hiding yarn ends (since I wanted to get the photos done during daylight hours!). All yarn ends were hidden away by just about dinner time last night.

Photo descriptions:

(1) All 63 squares laid out on the floor.
