baby boy crochet blanket

basic pattern the same as i used for previously posted blanket.
i started this one first, but finished it tonight.
good think little guy didn't decide to come REALLY early.

materials used: 2 skeins worsted weight yarn (7 oz skeins, i think), NOT doubled like i did with the two different yarns in previous blanket.
size K hook (or 10 1/2 or 6.5 mm, depending on which sizing system you are used to)
i lost track of how many hours i spent, but it was far more than the 3 hours the pattern creator said it takes her.

finally learning to crochet

Some of you have seen this on my blog, but I thought this blog needed some action:

a present for Zann's baby

I'm still working on the first blanket I started, which is going to be for my little guy. Zann is due first, so I put mine aside. Now I have to get to the post office. :)

The pattern I modified is here.
I chained 100 stitches to begin and used a smaller hook, so it took more yarn and time.
