It's November now, which mean Christmas is LESS than two months away, which in turn means that it is time to start working on homemade gifts. I thought that it would be fun to share some things that I've made for gifts. Sounds like I good idea, right? Well, there's a catch... Most of what I'll be sharing is from last year, and I'm just now posting them. Ha!
I made these for a friend who was having twins, a boy and a girl. I used two skeins of thick, chunky, soft yarn for each blanket. They are just a big granny square. I had originally planned to make smaller squares and join them together but because the yarn was so thick, it looked better as a giant granny, instead of a bunch of little ones.
The yarn was mostly acrylic, and oh so very soft.
Funny side note, I finished the blue blanket the night I went into labor with baby B. I was up late, crocheting like a mad woman while I kept track of the contractions. When the blanket was finished, I got up, called my midwife, and told my husband we needed to go to the birth center, baby B came six hours later!
