My sister is officially headed to the airport (for the second time today as she missed her first flight… UGH!) to go back to Mexico. Have I ever mentioned that one of my sisters lives in Mexico? Well she does. And you know what? Now that she’s heading back I’m realizing that I’ve missed her more than I thought.
So, I decided to share what I think will be one of my favorite sister memories from this Christmas. AKA brag about a finished project that should have been simple and short, but took me three months…
When I found out a few months ago that my sister was pregnant, I started this blanket RIGHT away! And I finished it on Christmas morning.
When she opened it, her reaction seemed to be genuinely happy, so I think making the blanket ended up being a good idea. Even if it did take me forever!
I picked up my very first pair of knitting needles exactly one year ago on Christmas, so I think it’s fitting that I gave someone a knitted gift this year. Can’t you just see her sweet little baby boy all curled up in his little blanket when he’s born in five months? She better send me pictures!
