Completed Project: Purple Dream Blanket

The latest Christmas gift I've ever completed. It went in the mail today and should be with its receipient before weeks end. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. The border gave it a finished look and a run through the washer and dryer made it extra soft.

Here are the details - also available on Ravelry.

The completion of this project means another item crossed out on my list of 2008 crafty resolutions. Yay!

Thanks! I'm so happy to finally be done with it, too. I think it will be awhile until I do another huge blanket.

How did we ever live without Ravelry? :)
