States/Countries Blanket
 
Hi everyone!

Well, it took me about 5 months, but I've finally finished this blanket. I made it from squares found here: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/people_places.html

I made all of the US states and all of the countries found there on that web site, and then added in "special" squares that have meaning to my friends I visit in a bereavement chat room. The center square pattern is one I found on ravelry, looks like candle flames, representing all the candles lit for our lost loved ones.

What a gorgeous blanket! The edging and the wonderful colors make it look like stained glass. Absolutely beautiful work.

Super, super fantastic! How big is it?

It almost covers my bed, which is a king size.
