My Favorite.....So Far!

This past December I was perusing the Flickr GrannySquares Pool looking for inspiration when I came across this blanket

It was instant love.   Of course, this is not unusual for me.  I seem to fall in love everyday when I love at crochet creations.  

But, for some reason, this one was different.  I had to make it......now! 

So I studied it carefully, determined what yarns were needed, and went to work on it.  And pretty soon I had a big stack of granny squares. 



And then February came......
And the stack just sat there waiting patiently to be joined. 
Well, I finally got it all put together.....
Finally. 
And this is the final product.



And I think I fell in love all over again......





And it now has a special place on my sofa. 



Within my reach when I am just sitting there watching TV. 
It's also within reach of the doggies.....
They totally loved snuggling up under the blanket as I was joining
the squares together. 
I with I had gotten a picture of them...it was so cute!
Yeah, I'm one of those people....the dogs are my little humans. 
But hey...cut me some slack....
Grandchildren are not in my near future!! 

Anyways....it is done...
And I thank Amanda for the inspiration!

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

What a stunning blanket, I love the colours you used (they're divine).

Where did you get your yarn?

Thanks Ladies for the nice comments. Heidi- The yarn I used was Vanna's Choice. There are also a couple of colors in there from Hobby Lobby's "I love this Yarn". Both can be obtained on-line. I hope that helps.
