It turned out great.

Needles: size 8
Size: 7 inch squares. 4 x 6 = 24 squares. 28 x 42 inches
Edging: 5 stitch applied I-cord
The recipient will be my 80 year old Mother-in-law who always seems to be cold. And how lucky for me that Mother's Day is this Sunday. So, this will make a wonderful Mother's Day gift for her. My mother was visiting recently and I showed her the almost finished blanket and explained who it was for and why. Her response was "Well, I get cold too." So we will have to remedy that!
I also recently finished a pretty little cover up for my 12 year old daughter.
Shetland Shorty from Knitty.com. I used some beautiful yarn from Knit Picks. I love their yarns and needles. This will be a great cover up and should hopefully fit her for many years to come.
And I just cast on for the last of 24 squares for my Barn Raising blanket. So, I will start sewing them together soon. This is an early Christmas present and I never get gifts done this early so that makes me happy.
