I finished the blanket with plenty of time to spare!!! That's one more resolution complete!
The blanket is approximately four feet wide by six feet long and is a good size for blanket sharing with someone on the couch. It is knit from mitered squares, which kept the stitch count on the needles low.
After finishing I have a few skeins of the lighter blue color yarn leftover so I need to find a project for them. I also have a bit of the darker blue yarn leftover, I didn't need to buy any more to finish the blanket!
