I finished my first blanket last week, and I am very happy with how it turned out. The colors work well together, and the pattern is very pretty. I have donated it to an auction to raise money for a friend's sheltie who has cancer. If you want to check out the auction, follow this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/binxauction/. There is a variety of objects up for auction and will be open until July the 8th at 8PM EST.
Now I am working on the Larksfoot pattern, and I have about 9 rows finished. I'm using 100% Acrylic yarn, so it's a bit stiff and probably too itchy to be used as a blanket so I'm going to use it as a crate mat.
