You guys... It's done. Finally. That damn knitted blanket, the one I've been working on for over a year, is complete.

So, we started with this:

And then it looked like this:

From there it ended up here:

And then it sat there. Forever. I'm not really sure what happened. Maybe I got burned out from knitting over 100 squares (!). Maybe I got sidetracked. Mostly I think it was that I had to crochet each row into strips and then crochet all those strips together. I hate crocheting. But I finally just decided it was time to get it over with, so I did a little each night over the past month and now it looks like this:

Words cannot express how happy I am to be done with this project. I learned a very important life lesson here. I will never make another one of these so long as I live. But at least now we can snuggle up with it in the evenings as the temperature drops.

Someone (okay, more like two someones) are very happy it's done and available for use.
