The store admin at the store I work in is leaving us soon – her husband was transferred to Texas (he’s already there) and she’s moving as soon as their house sells.
She’s such a nice person, and that job is probably the hardest job in the store, so I wanted to make her something as a thank you for all she does for us. I not-at-all-subtley asked for her favorite color, then told her to nevermind why when she asked why I was asking, lol.
I knew I wanted to make a throw, but it needed to be something easy that could be worked up quick. After searching Ravelry I settled on this pattern from Lion Brand yarn. A simple granny blanket, with a twist. The pattern calls for Vanna’s Choice, but I used Red Heart because of both the color selection and the amount of yarn you get per skein.
I used Pale Plum, Lavender, Medium Purple, and Dark Orchid.
Ta-da! 43 inches square of soft, cuddly blanket!
