Tickled Purple

It's done!  It's DONE!  IT. IS. SO. DONE!


Pattern: "#1 Tickled Pink" by Lisa Silverman found in 60 Quick Baby Blankets.
Yarn: Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash in 205, 803, 857, 871, and 880
Needles: US 7
Notes: There is apparently an error in the book for the pattern but I've knit patterns similar to this enough to be able to pick up the jist of the pattern really quickly and so I didn't notice the error.  (But, be warned if you're working from the book.)  The pattern is really quick and really easy as long as you're paying attention.  (AHEM, me.)


This blanket is lovely and squooshy and once washed, so soft.  I just hope the mom likes it as much as I do.


I really need to, again, THANK my mother in law repeatedly.  I wouldn't have been happy with how this blanket looked if I had just passed over the error and kept going.  It would have bothered me and motivation would be at an all time low to actually finish it.


By ripping back those stitches she SAVED this project and, in the process, also my sanity.  So- thank you Phyllis.... I owe you a BIG ONE.

It's beautiful. Right decision to rip it out!
