5 1/2 Hour Afghan, Or Is It?

I had been looking for a throw blanket to go on the couch in our front room for some time and couldn't find something that had just the right colors, so I decided to make one instead.  These are the colors I choose.  I ended up not using as many balls of yarn as indicated on the pattern (link above).

Well, suffice it to say that {for me} it took longer than 5 1/2 hours to make this afghan.  I usually have a lot of interruptions while I am crocheting/knitting so that is to be expected.

I like the fact that you use all 3 strands of yarn at the same time, giving it the multi-colored look.  You crochet with hook size Q-19.  I had to go buy one because I had never used this large of a hook, but I liked using it because it was easier to hold and made the work go by much faster.  

Here is the finished room.  I was trying to blend the colors in the rug, chairs, candles, and couch.  I think I achieved it.  What do you think?  Is this a project that would interest you?  If you have made this pattern or decide to make it in the future, please e-mail me so I can provide a link to your blog.
