Oh wow Carmen, that blanket is gorgeous!
I have a bunch of that yarn lying around that I bought when I was first learning to knit, then I realized how much I hated it. I even have a half-started stockinette stitch blanket with it but couldn't finish because the yarn just.....sucks so bad. lol I gave it all to my son who loves using it for his Nifty Knitter loom set. It works great with that!
