I think it came out great, which is good because I plan to make at least 3 more! The one I just cast on is orange, and it will have a red tie string. I love the idea of making several as a gift, and having them all coordinate :)
I did pick up the crocheted blanket this week, but I only did a few rows and forgot to take a photo. Oops! Next week.
Reading is still just more school work. I am just about done with Embers of War, which is a book about the Vietnam War. If you are at all interested in that kind of thing I would highly suggest this book- while it is packed full of details it doesn't read like a textbook, and when I wasn't madly trying to finish reading by a deadline I enjoyed it.
