It's so Purpley






Blanket for hubby's Gram's 90th birthday- finished
Grandma Kurtz is turning 90 so part of her present is this blanket. This is a thistle stitch and I used Vanna's choice yarn in Dusty Purple. It worked up REALLY fast!

Also I had 1 ball of yarn leftover and so I started one of my resolutions. KNITTING I'm going with this site for now http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/learn-to-knit but I haven't figured out purling. Also I did a swatch this size like 5 times and have ripped them all out because they seem wonky to me.... maybe it's just because it isn't crocheting.
