An Afghan for Favorite Son

When Favorite Son was getting ready to graduate from High School last year I told him I'd make him an afghan.  It was my last year of teaching and I had other obligations and projects that kept getting in the way.  I FINALLY finished it today!! 



He picked out the colors and I found this ombre pattern that blended them together.  The ripple stitch was easy to do.  I think it turned out really well. 



He's a tall fellow so I made it plenty big to keep him warm at college.  Kind of like a momma's hug!
