Remember when I posted about Benne's blanket and showed you a photo of the blanket before seaming? Well she received her blanket on Monday, and has finally taken a photos of the finished blanket. You can see the blanket here (click on photos to enlarge). I love love love the square with the crab! That is awesome!
The yarn used was Elann Highland Wool in these colors:
Red Maple (87M2)Benne is still waiting for the Blankie Tales which will tell her a little about what each square was doing while it was being knit and who made it. Bets is putting this together. Come on Bets! Festina lente! :-) Until then, I can point out a few of the squares to you:
Harvest Heather (0744)

Oh gosh, I hope I get these squares and links correct! Sorry I can't identify each square. Other partners in crime included: Amy, Billie, Cheryl K, Cheryl T, Daryl, Denise, Evelyn, Karin, and Kim.
I know that Jean has made a beautiful stained glass hummingbird for Benne. She was taking a class and made this herself! That is so cool!
