Man Blanket

For my fiber art followers/pals......some show & tell! 
Ever notice how you can get so busy making stuff/commissions for everyone else, that your own family kind of gets neglected of receiving THEIR fiber, too?  :)
Well, I was feeling guilty because one day recently my sweet hubby noticed a blanket-project I finished for a college raffle give-away and commented on how nice it would be to have one like that - hint-hint.....
So I decided to make one for him!  I chose colors that would look good on him all cuddled up on the couch.  Dark black-ish-gray to match his hair and shades of green to match his beautiful green eyes - Lyon Brand Homespun yarn in "Edwardian" and "Herb Garden", using two strands, Trinity Stitch, with a big ol' "P" crochet hook, which is making a really thick, and manly colored blankie!  (And it's big enough for two to cuddle under! - Yea, Baby!)

 He sees me working on it every night, but hasn't asked yet who it is for...!  ;)
I'll see if I can get it done before he asks, and then just lay it on him one night when he's snoozing on the couch!  And if he's lucky, I'll snuggle up under it with him to break it in
