FO: My first blanket
I am fairly new to crochet and I just finished my first blanket. It's a basic granny square blanket.
It took me a couple months, and it turned out perfectly. It's soft, it's warm, it's great for Canadian winter.
And I've already started another one!

Fabulous job you did on your first blanket! Wasn't it FUN? Looks like your stitching is very even too. Great job! I also love the colors and the placement of the blocks...very quilty!

Congratulations on a fabulous looking first blanket, which is living up to your expectations. Don't you love it when it works out that way?

Can't wait to see pics of the next one, too. I'm sure it will be just as impressive!!

Well done! I also like the view you've given us of the snowy field through the picture windows. We can see the need for a warm blanket, no doubt about it!

Your blanket reminds me of stained glass. It adds just a little something more to it.

Thank you all for your kind comments, it is really inspiring. The next blanket pattern is called Midnight Brites by Mary Maxim. When it is finished would look like this (hopefully):
