And then...

Ta da!

And there it is.  A great big basket.  At the bottom of the basket is the 2 full bags of 10 skeins each of the yarn for this blanket.  Its a nice big basket and just what I was aiming for.

I completed 3 tiers of the pattern.  I was planning to go one higher to use up all the yarn, but once I had the third set of patterning done, it was clear that to go higher would have made it less versatile.  The scale would have been all wrong.  So 3 it is.  

 Then, to finish off nice and crisp, I did an extra 2 rows of single crochet, decreasing every 10 (round 1) and then every 7 stitches (2nd round).  I did that so it would be less floppy and for the added density to the top edge.  And then, as you can see, I finished off with a loop of chain stitches. 

Pretty pleased with this little diversion from everything else.  Put a little pep in my step and boosted my desire to knit just as much as I can.
