Technically, I've been working on it since last December. Actually, it's more like February or April because I frogged the first attempt. And I took at least three months off from it entirely. But it's done now. And I'm so happy!
It's very warm and snugly, even for Lion Brand Homespun acrylic. I hope that it sees many good years of use in the family. I hope that it gets stained and dirty from being dragged around the house by the kids! I hope it ends up on the floor wrapped around the family while they watch a movie. I hope that it gets pulled out of shape in an effort to get the most blanket.
All those things happened to the ripple blanket that my mother made. And I love that blanket and it was trapezoidal to start with (I thought we had just warped it with too much tough love!) and I would still be glad and proud to toss it on our couch!
