Picture of Work Paid Off

I started with a ch of 109 and it came out to be the perfect size. My finished Blanket measured Approx 5' in length and about 3' wide. Perfect for my daughter's twin bed...and also nice and thick. Some of the best yarn that I have worked with so far. So soft and pretty! ? It took me about 2 weeks to finish but it was well worth the time and work I put into it. Just to see my daughter's face when I had finished made it worth every minute...
