FO: So, I made a blanket for my niece...
I made a blanket for my niece for her 10th birthday and decided to crochet it as I wanted to try a ripple afghan. I made it big enough for her double bed.

Here is the finished product!






And here she is opening the gifty...



She loved it!! I'm so happy. I was a little worried.

Wends, that afghan is beautiful! You did a fabulous job and the colors are so varied that it will look nice anywhere. You should be quite proud of your handiwork. This is something your niece will treasure for a very long time and perhaps even pass down to the next generation.

Good job!

She's very pretty. The afghan is beautiful, and having made one or six over the years, I know how much time and love to complete it.
