The best thing about this blanket, next to the fact that it taught me a lot about trying out a new pattern, joining hexagons and such is that this is the first thing I crocheted in our new house.
Crocheted while sitting happily on our new couch. A blanket of love. A blanket made in a world that stopped whizzing past me at lightning speed. Priceless! The pattern I used is from Heidi Bear.
