Yesterday, I sorted through the knitted blocks I made last year after completing the large afghan for son and his wife's Christmas gift. When their two children commented that they would like their own blankets, I began knitting blocks again. Of course, as usual, I went overboard on the time spent knitting and had very sore hands and wrists! So, the blocks were put aside. Since its now November, I began thinking of Christmas and then had a lightbulb moment......putting together the blankets for the grandchildren.
I laid out the blocks and sewed one row together last night. I did leave them as they were (on the living room carpet) and will sew more today. Stay tuned for pictures of the pink/purple/green blanket. Then, onto the boy colors for the second one.
Of course, I will have MANY leftover blocks.....maybe I'll donate them to the church group??? Don't think hubby & I need more blankets!
Have a great day!
P.S. See the Dec. 16, 2010 post for a pic of the blanket I made last year.
