BF's mom & grandma are HORRIBLE to buy gifts for; they have no hobbies, don't go out, really don't do much besides cook, clean & watch tv and we've kind of exhausted those gifts.  So, this year I decided to make a blanket for grandma, who is always cold; I put in the labor, bf bought most of the yarn.  The blanket ended up REALLY heavy - I used chenille thick & quick and alternated the colors.  I finished it literally on Christmas eve (and didn't have time to do a nice all around border), but it all worked out!


This image is kind of dark

There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality.  There is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is the trumpeter's fury.  And then there's the dark side.

Very nice.  I'm working on a granny square blanket myself and I can't wait until it all comes together.
