birthday blanket

mulberry

I made this blanket way back in November, probably the only time I've ever gotten a present done so early! It was done for my mom's birthday last week. I'm so thrilled with how it turned out, it's so lacy and beautiful! It's a really great size for a lap blanket too. Some day I will probably make one for myself too.

I used Bernat Super Value Solids in mulberry. I'm so glad I accidently went home with the color, it's gorgeous!

The pattern I used is called Anya, it's a part of this Lace Love booklet that I purchased from Lisa last year. You can get a printed copy from her shop here, the booklet is really beautiful too!

  3. Oh, it's so beautiful! I made a doily blanket using purple a few weeks ago, too! It's such a great color.

  5. It is an awesome blanket! Colour is great and the pattern too! Did you use crossed stitches to get that lace like look? :)

  6. Just gorgeous! Been thinking of doing one like it soon myself. I really like these round doily style blankets. Love the color you chose.

  7. Love it. I think it looks like a great big doily. It could also be adapted into a skirt. Purple was a perfect color for it. checking out the Ravelry page now.
