It looks fantastic!!! Great Job!

I'm curious - why do you wish you had used wool yarn?

That's beautiful! I love the stitch patterns in it-and the castle is just adorable! Is the castle block in the pattern? If so, what number block is it? I read through the pattern, but didn't see it (could be I read through to quickly).
A little sampler afghan with that castle would be perfect for my daughter.
Well done!

I'm just not a great fan of acrylic. But I found a super bargain at the LYS and the budget for wool wasn't there at the time. If i'd imagined for a second the blanket would turn out that good i'd have spent more $ and got wool, which I much prefer.

No, its one of the many I changed. It was part of a pattern in one of my old 1970's craft books I've always wanted to try. I'm happy to scan the pattern I have if you wish, as I can't see any copyright's on this publication.
but I see it can be found in one of the Walker Stitch Treasury books. http://thewalkertreasury.wordpress.c...rbread-castle/

Oh man, I totally wanna snuggle under that. And I could look at all the squares while I'm underneath. I love it, I want one. But I don't have the sticktuitiveness. Excellent.

That is really pretty! Patchwork type blankets are fun to work on, at least I think so.
