I still wanted to do more. I looked around my yarn stash and I realized that I had a bunch of yarn that I could use to make a blanket. I knew that it would be a challenge to do, but I was determined to make a blanket for donation, as quick as I could. I gathered up all different kinds of purple-ish yarns that I had.
I had a lot of Lion Brand Homespun, some other Lion Brand color waves yarn (or something like that) and a few other random fuzzy yarns. I also had a bunch of Red Heart Super Saver in various purples and some white yarn. I got out one of my largest hooks, held a fuzzy strand and a RHSS strand together, and got crocheting. I don't remember how many I chained, but the blanket ended up being large enough to cover the top of my full-sized bed. The blanket is just all double crochets. I changed yarns as the other ran out and I edged it with a round of single crochets. I was able to get the entire blanket done within 25 hours of starting it---and no, I did not crochet every single minute of that time :).
I really am happy with the way that it came out. I love the color changes and it is SO snuggly soft! I was so happy to donate it at my yoga studio. I attached a little note to it saying that I was thinking about the person who got it and I hope it kept him/her warm. I only wish I could make more of these.
