Alice's purple blanket

As soon as it turned Fall I pulled out the 4 skeins of yarn that I had been saving since early Summer. I just couldn't bring myself to crochet a warm blanket in the Summer heat. I felt silly waiting all the way until Fall, though, since it only took a few days to do. 

My friend, Kirsti, had a blanket very similar to this and that's where I got my inspiration from. Hers was also a deep purple and a thick & chunky blanket to snuggle with. 

I don't usually have it outside on the ground but I was willing to do it this once so that I could finally get a good picture of it... since I had already put it off since the beginning of Fall. I love that when Kate saw me trying to snap a picture of it she wanted to join in.

Are there any projects that you save to do until Fall or Winter? Whether you mean to or not?

That yarn is Lion Brand Homespun, huh? It's so soft but I think it's a pain in the butt to crochet with!! Hahaha! That blanket is gorgeous though :)
