I have been knitting for 2 whole days now on this. This is Monkey boy's Birthday blankie. He asked for a round blankie like the one I made Bunky last year. "But no girl colors" I may be pushing it with the purple but that is what I had in the stash. One stripe black one color. I hope to put a black border on it but I may not have enough yarn. time will tell.
Because of the blankie I have not touched Hubby's socks. I will get them done in time to go under the tree. I will. I have 36 (I think) more days. I have about 11 days on the blankie.
