In other news my brother in law contacted me to thank me for the blanket. He said it was "outstanding," "fantastic" and "looks great"; those were his exact words!!! And he doesn't normally get that enthusiastic about anything. This was the first time I gave a knitted item to someone I wasn't sure would really like it, so I am glad it got such a good reception. To refresh everyone's memory this is what the blanket looked like. This is a picture of the one I gave my friend because I was in such a hurry to send this one off I forgot to take a picture of it.
