What materials did you use? White Monk's Cloth (1.5 yards), Green Worsted Weight Yarn, Caron Simply Soft Yarn in Black, Lion Brand Fancy Tube Yarn (it's the shiny stuff that variegates).

What are you most proud of? This blanket was made for my husband while we were dating and I let him pick the colors and all. Sadly, I lost the fancy yarn when I only had 2 rows left - that was back in 2008. I found the yarn while going through a bunch of old stuff and I finished it up! So, now it's called the 4 year blanket because that's how long it took to complete :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to try nontraditional yarns. I really love the edgy look it gives to something that I have always called my Granny Craft :)

Awww, look who's happy now! Your blanket is fabulous, the shiny, fancy yarn is great.
