Basically babbling 'bout blankets
Other than the item I made for a friend for Christmas - which still hasn't arrived with the person, so I'm still not saying what it is - and the Christmas ornament I made for my Mam (and totally forgot to give her), the only craft items I made for Christmas this year - well, technically last year - were the things I made for the babies. The soft shaped toys I made for Michael, the blanket I made for Michael that I did consider keeping here to use when I babysit Emma-Jane, but did end up giving to Michael after all, and the blanket I made for Emma-Jane. I don't know about the babies, but I know the adults absolutely loved the blankets. In fact, Emma-Jane's was so much loved that her Auntie Pia (Emma-Jane's mother, Louise's older sister, and a long time friend of mine) has asked me to make one for her little baby boy, Max, who was born in October. So, I've put the blanket I was knitting for myself on hold - I'm almost half way through it now, but decided it can wait while I work on Pia's request - and have now started knitting Max's blanket.
