FO: Christmas Presents!

Just before midnight on Friday December 24th I finished the afghans for my parents' Christmas presents. Good thing I started planning them last December, started buying yarn last January, and actually started hooking in April. 2010 was the year of the blankets!

Bullseye pattern by Brittany Tyler which was inspired by a blanket in the Garnet Hill Catalog
Crochet Hook I/5.5mm
Yarn--over 3,000 yards of superwash (mostly) wool bought on sale throughout the year in blues, greens, browns, and grays including Cascade 220 Superwash, Berroco Vintage, Plymouth Encore Yarn Worsted

I LOVE these blankets and am even kind of sort of thinking about making one for me! ;)
