Finished - Striped Toddler Blanket

I finished weaving in all the ends a little bit ago.  Whew!  What a job.  This blanket is inappropriately named since it's way bigger than a toddler blanket.  It ended up being 43 inches wide by 54 inches long.  There were 290 knitted rows.  I kept count while I was knitting.  The colors are done in a 10 row sequence.  I used Red Heart With Love yarn in the colors Navy and Pewter.  I used about 1 3/4 skeins of Navy and a little over 1 1/2 skeins of Pewter.  I worked this up with a size 10.5 circular knitting needle.  I really, really love this blanket and honestly, I will probably make another one just this size.  Oh, I almost forgot.  I cast on 125 stitches for this blanket.  It's done entirely in the knit stitch.
