I finished the blanket for my cousin and her fiance. I used TLC Essentials yarn and this pattern.
I think it came out really nice. I can't wait to give it to them. I've made this blanket before, it was the first one I ever made. I'm also making it again for me. It was started a few months ago but I had to put it down to make gifts so as soon as I'm done I'll get back to it. I'm using four colors for mine.
Now I have to go figure out how to tack down the inside lining of the pirates hat. That should be fun.
