"Yesh!" Blanket

I posted this in my craft-a-longs but she is two years in the making so I decided she needed her own wee post as well. I made it in Vanna’s Choice (Lion Brand) Fisherman, black, Cherry, and a wine color I’d have to go look at the tag to get the correct name. I took the image off the interwebz and uploaded it to stitch fiddle to make the chart and then worked on it, frogged it, worked on it some more until we got here. I had originally intended to make a nice throw blanket and ended up with a bed cover 7 1/2’ square-ish. I shipped her off this week and she is in her new home being all cozy-like.
Thanks for looking!

It certainly does deserve its own post! That’s a huge amount of work and very impressive.

Who are these characters?

Aw, this is so cute. I love those characters & you did a beautiful job rendering them. I like the border at top and bottom only, it’s a nice feature.
What was the reaction? I bet squealing and some happy tears, yes?

Thanks, Everyone! I’m so, so glad it’s finished and they came out looking like the originals :slight_smile:

Yes! She actually FaceTimed to show me that she had already put it out on her bed with a pillow of the characters sleeping to match. :slight_smile:
