I've been working on this blanket for months and months and I'm sooooooo happy it's finished! I find myself looking at it again and again during the day. It's so colorful and so happy. It livens up my mostly brown living room :)
It's made from mostly thrifted yarn (which I did wash by the way) and my left-over scraps, so it was cheap to make too.
