Fish Blanket

I've been working steadily on putting the Fish Blanket together.
 All the vertical stripes are done and now it's just a matter of crocheting the horizontal stripes.
 Still a few rows to go, but mostly done.  A border will need to be added as the ends do not line up as neatly as I had hoped.   I'm not quite sure what type of border this needs or even what color.
 My favorite fish.  I love the fun and happy color of this one!
 The back of this blanket along with the book I am currently reading.  I am almost done with it and have enjoyed it immensely so far.
A close up of how this method of attaching pieces together looks on the back.   Kind of reminds me of Frankenstein!

Look over at Tamis's and Ginny's for more yarny type fun.

Oh wow. I'm in awe of the size and sheer coolness of this blanket! It makes me want to go search for a (crocheted) fish motif pattern right this second. :)

I love this fish blanket! I think it is such a great idea and would be a perfect gift in this family of fishermen boys (nephews, etc). Did you make the pattern yourself or are you following a pattern?

Also, I bought that book for my husband when it came out and he loved it!!! We are both big Law & Order fans, so that is why I bought it, but he said it was a great book in general.
