The weather this year at Christmas was exceptional. It was so warm the kids ate outside and stayed outdoors most of the afternoon. In the spirit of gift-giving (in honor of the best gift of all–Jesus) I made each one a warm blanket for their gift this year. At one point someone suggested everyone put on their new blankets for a quick pic. This is the result.
I think I made 22 in all. Couples got double wide ones. I used a looped yarn that doesn’t require knitting or crochet needles. Yea!
Here are a couple of pre-Christmas picks I took.
A finished one. The young ladies also received hats and scarves.
I wonder what I’ll do for next year. Any suggestions?
