A beautiful blanket for my mom: link to harlequin crochet pattern

I've crocheted very few blankets in my life-mostly for wedding gifts or a long awaited baby…but I felt my Mom deserved her own…plus she's always cold, so I knew it would get lots of use. So I found this pattern that I LOVED and picked some colors. The original pattern has 5 colors, but I used 4 and slightly modified the color pattern. I was very happy with how it turned out but it took FOREVER… I started in October and was literally finishing it on the airplane on my way home for Christmas!  Every movie, Skype call, podcast and bus ride provided time for me to work my little wrists off!  So here it is, (I never got a final picture of the whole blanket, but if you go to my Moms house, someone will probably be wrapped up in it in front of the TV.)  :)
