50th Birthday Blanket

My brother turns 50 this year so I decided to knit him a blanket to mark the occasion. Not sure if he will appreciate it or not, but I enjoyed knitting it. I really enjoyed knitting this pattern: Rolling Ripple from Knit Afghans of Many Colors by the American School of Needlework. I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. Yes, that is the name of the yarn and yes, I do love this yarn! It is very soft and easy to work with and very affordable as well. I used 2 strands and the following colors: navy, dark country blue, medium blue, soft blue, light taupe, light sage, mid green, and dark olive. I was very happy with the finished product and hated to see it go :( - but hopefully it has a good home. :)
