Post Tryptophan Day

A LOT of down time today after the flurries of the last few days....Ashley and I made a few more ornaments...these are halves of a whole;  they get glued back to back with a hanger loop in between the layers.  We had fun decorating while Will napped. 
When he woke up, we let him decorate his own tree!  He had ideas! 
And was very particular about which color went where.  He did like using the Accuquilt a lot, too. 
AND I AM DONE WITH THE ENTRELAC BLANKET FOR NEW BABY, EATHAN!
It did become a bit of a knitting grind stone around my neck but I kept my eye on the goal most of the time!  I got it done almost whole month before he is due!

I used Prism yarn from Mary Maxim.  The pattern is now engraved on my knitting heart;  it is over a base set of 10 triangles, 10 stitches each.  It turns out about 36" wide by 42" long.

Quick!  Where is some sock yarn?!

    Congrats on finishing another beautiful entrelac blanket...and so far ahead of your goal besides!
