Did the math

So after i gave Aunt Carol her afghan... and we were curious how much time i spent working on it..... here's the results....

It took me a little less then 2 months(i slacked a bit)
I probably spent around 35 hours on it
I used 8 skeins
Its 135 stitches across
Approximately 320 rows
And about 43,200 individual knits

That's insane!

Blanket 2

The Border.... "Popcorn" Style

My Aunt Designed it.... She has the two thick stripes, so when she folds it over the couch, you would get a result like so.... the reverse side is the same, however it has two thin cream stripes, with the thicker Gray stripe in the middle

The Final Result! I am so thrilled with how it turned out! Its slightly bigger then the first one i made... they are both the perfect size to keep cozy with on the couch.
