I started this in early January and finished last night. I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn. And it's for me!!! I'm not giving this one away.

Oh DROOL!!! I want to make one so bad, is there a pattern or just even the amount of cast on stitches and pick up sts??? Seriously, you've done a wonderful job and it IS gorgeous. Choice of colors is fantastic!

That is lovely! And so even. Can you give us the colors you used? I recognize a number of them, but really, that combination is beautiful.

Robin, that is one very beautiful blanket. Thanks also for posting the colors, they are very evocative of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. They are one of three things I miss about living in New Mexico,the other two being the Kodak International Balloon Fiesta, and the aroma of chilis roasting in the Fall.

Yes, beautiful work of art!
It has inspired, me, too, to make one. Been thinking about it for a while. How big is that blanket?

It's about 60 inches square. It took most of 10 skeins of yarn.
