For Christmas, I made Elly a handknit flower hat, 3 lace cards, a hero mask and a jewelry box.
Heck, I even made hero masks for 3 of Elly’s cousins and 2 of Elly’s friends.
Dan got to open a half-finished Phillies blanket with the pins still in it.
Thankfully, Dan just laughed at the pins and thought the blanket was a great gift.
On the 11th day of Christmas, I finally gave Dan the finished blanket, which he promptly put to use.
It is super warm, being made of 2 layers of fleece. If I hadn’t opted to use one of the fancy stitches for the border, the blanket would have been finished on time. Those fancy stitches are pretty, but they take three times as long to sew as a simple straight stitch.
