What are you most proud of? That it actually came out like I envisioned! I have only done one other "object" blanket like this - tore a lot out in the process! What advice would you give someone starting this project? start with simple crochet stitches/blankets, really get your technique down before tackling a freeform like this. Be patient, don't be afraid to rip out stitches, the earlier the better!
