Purdue Blanket for Friend's Graduation

This is the blanket that I finished for a friend who graduated in August. His mom was my advisor in ME. I searched all of the yarn websites to find the color that most represented Purdue Gold. It was pretty tough to settle on one (Coats - Yarn 67311 Red Heart Super Saver Yarn-Gold ), but ultimately this was the best!
I got to learn how to cross stitch in a double crochet... It definitely could have been prettier.
I was asked to put my name and the name of a mutual friend that we lost right before graduation. Molly was originally supposed to make the blanket.
I loved the way the blanket ultimately turned out, but there was no shortage of tears throughout the process.
