My mom's blanket

Voila the blanket I crocheted for my mother for Christmas.
I used Homespun yarn in a raspberry colour (don't remember the official name). I basically crocheted a bunch of scarves, one skein each, then sewed them together. The tassles were hell. Homespun is the worst for fraying, which it does as soon as you cut it. I tried a fray-stopper solution, but it didn't work. In the end, my sister tied little knots at the end of each tassle (thanks Richelle) to stop them from turning into little afros.

Wow! The mittens are so amazing. They were totally worth the effort! I love the blanket too; good idea!
