Every year I look forward to my husband’s family reunion. It’s a grand time with tons of family (obviously), food, and old-fashioned Texan fun! We all catch up, overeat, and then sit down to watch the show. The show happens to be the patriarchs of the family hilariously running an auction of goods brought in by the family. Some are purchased, some are of the white elephant gift variety, and lots are homemade. Last year I donated this, my labor of love:
It was so fun to make, but I procrastinated and finished weaving in ends on the drive there! But THIS year I’m starting early. Er, planning to start early. First I have to figure out what to make! I plan to go with a blanket again (if only to narrow down my options ). Here are the current top contenders (click on the photos to go to the patterns):
1: Weekend in Stockholm Throw by Debbie Stoller
2: Larksfoot Throw, courtesy of Meet Me at Mikes
3: An ‘ordinarily extraordinary’ blanket, courtesy of dottie angel
And there’s always 4: a random assortment of granny squares.
And so, I say to you, VOTE! Please, please, please don’t make me make my own decision.* Which do you think is best? Last year my blanket was one of the top sellers, so I can’t disappoint! (No pressure though..) SO, which should I make?
