Oops! I guess your a blanket now

 
You know how you grab a random ball of yarn out of your stash and think you will quick make a charity scarf? Well that's what I started here and it just sort of exploded on me and turned into a blanket I cannot part with. This is crocheted out of Paton's Divine and JoAnn's Angel Hair yarn (see more details on how much, etc on my Ravelry Project Page) and it is fluffy and light and just wonderful to curl up under. I have been rather obsessed with it and knocked this out in about 10 days. My wrist is none to happy with me, but I can curl up under my new blanket while I complain about it!
 
Bonus that I got 8 large balls of yarn out of my stash by making this as well. (Woot woot!) I crocheted this with a size (P) crochet hook and it was just under 1000 yards when I finished. I curled up under it last night while watching Bar Rescue and it was really warm but really light weight. Just love it!
 
Already I am looking at my stash and wondering what I can whip into a blanket next!

@Inthesky Thank you! It is improving. Of course if I would stop crocheting all the time - for some reason that really kills my wrist! But I really love how quickly one can whip stuff out with crochet... so ... Yeah. Ouch! ;)
