Lighthouse blanket

I am thrilled to share this blanket with you today.  If you follow me on facebook you may have already seen this.
I was chosen by to test this pattern.  This is my first test piece and biggest graph so far.

I made this for my mom for her birthday.  I got the graph on January 31st and finished it on February 21st.  Her birthday is the 24th!
The cool part of this (other than the actual pattern) is I only had to buy another skein of blue for the sky! I had all the rest in my stash, so it was a good stash buster.

I used the border idea from with her Gingerbread advent calendar. 
I added a third color to bring out the lighthouse colors and the light blue.

This is a picture of my 5'11" husband trying to hold it up for me to get a better photo!
It's a big and warm blanket!
