Jacob's Stripe-ity Scrap-ity All Finished!

I finished up Jacob's blanket last night.  I think he'll like the bright bold colors.  Can you believe I used all leftovers from my stash!

How do you like the border?  I used a denim color blue and added some color to the very edge, followed by a final row of backwards crochet, which gives it a rope-like edging. 

Here is an up close view.

I definitely plan on doing another one of these blankets.  It's fun mindless crocheting and gives quick satisfaction.  Jacob wanted his blanket in bright colors...so this should make him happy!  I think when I do another one of these I will go towards the earth tones with some black and whites mixed in.

Phoebe gives it her stamp of approval!  Oh, for those wanting the pattern, you can find it here.

Progress is coming along on my zig zag afghan and pictures are soon on the way with my progress!  In the meantime I wish everyone a great productive week!!!
