Who knew these skeins of yarn could make a blanket?
This also became the norm. When the blanket got big enough, people (namely The Boy) would gravitate to it and try to cover up with it while I was working. Please note how his big toe found a hole. Lovely.
To finish it off, I did a simple green border and a slightly bigger brown border. Gave it some definition and make it look complete.
It...uh...ended up bigger than we anticipated. He can totally take it to college with him.
That concludes my first crocheting project. It wasn't bad at all. I have some yarn left over and I'm contemplating making him a MUCH smaller blanket to have in the truck when we travel. No need to let it go to waste. Like I said, it's not perfect, but he loves it and that's all that matters.
