It only took me 15 years to make [& 1 year to post :D]
When my daughter was a baby, I did not crochet. Last year, when I started learning, she asked me to make her a blanket for her 15th birthday after seeing a free pattern at Michaels. It took me a little over a month to complete.
(Yarn is the Michaels Store Brand Loops & Threads Country Loom in Solarium)
Unfortunately, when I started the blanket, my stitches were pretty loose, but I finished the blanket during all my television show season finales and my stitching was a lot tighter. Not too noticable until you try to fold it.
At first, I thought I had missed a stitch somewhere, but after counting both the first row and last row, I realized what I had done and there was no way I was going to start over. But she loved it and that is all that mattered.
I finished this blanket in May 2010 and it only took me a year to write about it. But I had to write about my first blanket.
