Giant Granny Square Blanket - Tada!!!

Not exactly a fast project but I love how my giant granny square blanket turned out. It started out as a project I could work on while my children were around instead of the more complicated shawl I picked for my MIL.  

It got so much fun then I haven't touched the shawl in weeks!

Right now I am debating if I should make a more sophisticated border or just leave it this way. What do you think?

I used some of the leftover yarn from my previous blanket. I used Caron Simply Soft for two reasons first I wanted the ease of care of Acrylic (despite my snobbish taste in yarn) and also because of the choices of colors.   

I have since discovered Deramores and I can't wait to order some new yarn for the next blanket. I know ! I told you I was hooked!!

I am just happy with the colors and the fact that I am spicing up the look of the living room. I am already thinking of doing something about the boring IKEA pillows. Any ideas?
