The 2nd project I ever completed is this blanket that I am saving for a special someone for Christmas. I think the colours are really her style and should keep her nice and cozy during the chilly Vancouver winter.
I got the pattern from www.bernat.com, it is a baby blanket pattern but I just kept going around until it was big enough for a grown up. I used 2 colours of Lionbrand Homespun yarn and a size N hook. It is so soft and fuzzy, I love it!
