I have finally finished my blanket and here it is! I am the workmate Deria refers to in her posts and it was she who kindly took the photos for me. Credit has to also go to Demolas, my husband and not a member of this "knitting' forum, for showing me how to make the pictures take up less data space. (I could be sitting at my sewing machine and that is 'knitting' to my husband despite the number of times I have explained I don't know how to knit.)
This project has been made extra fun with all of you who posted and shared stories and photos as we went along. I have seen some wonderful work from you. Thank you to you all.

I went with a different yarn as I wanted to do both the Crochet and Knit A Longs at the same time and in the same colors to match each other on our couch. When I went to the store, they were very limited on the color selections so I went with mostly nuetrals with a punch of orange. I am OK with the way it came out but wished I had picked different colors. The colors remind me of 70s colors - rust, brown, orange. Maybe it will look better when I paint the family room green (main color).
I really enjoyed crocheting the motifs all week but didn't really like the finished layout. I used a different layout (taking inspiration from one posted) and added a different border.

Edging was simple 3 rows of dc.
I had a great time doing this CAL, my very first afghan and first large project made for myself.

Second, I was frustrated on how to do a border. I'm still not completely happy with what I ended up with, but it's done. I had almost an entire skein left of each color, and I wanted to use as much of it up as possible. I have enough left over between all the colors now to maybe make a pillow, which I might do. We shall see.
I love your color choices, they really pop.

I think it came out very nice and of course I love how the colors go together.
Thanks Bernat for doing such a fun CAL! I absolutely love the patterns we used. To attach the motifs together I single crocheted them, it gives a slight raised edge to each motif.
