I just finished my second crochet project. It's the same exact pattern as the last blanket I made because I had a pretty strict time limit to make this. I absolutely love the yarn though. It is SWS yarn by Patons ( soy wool stripes). It's a very soft natural yarn. I didn't have to change the colors in the rows the yarn fades into different colors as you go along. I think that gave this blanket a really cool look.
