Baby blanket no more

Today I completed the most tiring project of my crocheting "career." I started a ripple wave blanket last week with thoughts that it would be a pretty cool baby blanket. After working several rows, it became clear that it was going to be too big to be a baby blanket but might make a nice lap throw. After Hubby showed it to his mother, she HAD TO HAVE IT for her mother-in-law's birthday. The catch - she needed it finished in 3 days! EEK! So, after some seriously hard work and 18 hours of crochet, I finished this awesome throw with time to spare! I'm not in a hurry to make another one anytime soon, but I'm still interested in trying it out in baby size! lol
