A Handmade Blanket

Sewing is not one of my fortes but I do like to make quilts/easy blankets. Right now however I do not have a sewing machine so I took up this endeavor by hand—something very dumb of me to do in the middle of a big harvest season. My coworker is pregnant and due in a few weeks and I wanted to make something for the baby. Normally I would have used a machine to sew up a quick blanket or even crocheted but no, I did it the hard way.

It turned out mostly good with a few blemishes but I think that adds to the charm. I miscalculated my width on a few of the rows—oh well!

At least the end result was a nice blanket that I could gift—remind me not to do this again!

    Looks good! What you don’t want to help me quilt one of Nan’s or Granny’s quilt top’s by hand? I sure do want to quilt one day soon and fix the old ones.
