I finally finished doing the work for my mom yesterday. I completed the fleece tie blanket for a boy. It's more for crib decor until the kid is older though. The blanket would also be good as a cover for long trips with the kids (toddler and below.) The final product is quite spiffy in my opinion, just take a look.
Also, I am pretty excited because I was working on my repurposed handspun yarn scarf tonight. This is a pretty big deal to me since I hadn't worked on it in a few months. Tonight I braved the needles though and fixed the mistake that paralyzed my progress. I picked up slipped stitches and you know what? It worked. Oh happy day. Now I can finish it sooner rather than later.
