FO: The Path to Sixty

So this happened last night...
...and I'm so pleased to be finished and so proud of my work!!

It was a long journey from cast on to border bindoff:
slow and steady
fun during Blog Week
reclaiming yarn
trying out different patterns
seaming nightmares
cross country road trip

Better pictures later, possibly.  For now, here are the stats...

Wow, that is one impressive blanket. I'm in awe of your ability to get it done - I would have taken years!
