The Big Blue Blanket

This one is maybe the largest blanket I ever crocheted. It's queen sized. It certainly is heavy, and until we got our front loading washer, it took a trip to the laundromat to find a machine large enough to wash it.

With this blanket I learned the value of checking the dye lot. The band of solid color blue near the bottom has faded over the years in a way that is inconsistent with the rest of the bands of that color.

A dog chewed a hole in it, so it became mine.
