Wow! This was a warm project to work on! Thank goodness it's not summer or fall! It was shipped to Greg a few days ago - just in time to use it for a few weeks before it gets warm and muggy in Virginia.

15 skeins wasn't enough! I needed 3 more. Yikes! The cost of the yarn alone was $116.00. Well, Greg's comfort is worth it.

Bill had the gall to say Greg and Lauren will probably end up in San Diego and won't ever use the blanket after this winter! Harrumph. In that case, I'll ask for the blanket back and re-use the yarn for other projects! So there!

This blanket started off following an afghan pattern called Textured Sampler (which I adjusted to be longer), but quickly became a collection of textured stitches that worked well with the yarn thickness.
