The pre-hemmed plaid blanket came out looking great!
I used my usual pattern for its crocheted border.
I thought I’d really hit the jackpot when I discovered that my second blue fleece, a snowflake one that I so want to finish and pass on before the few remaining drifts of snow have melted, was also machine hemmed! But on closer examination I found that, not only was every edge wavy and two of its corners more swish shaped than square, it also had a Dark Brown SPOT! – Sorry, didn’t think to take pics to share. – Luckily the spot was only a couple of inches in from the edge. Yay! I didn’t even try to wash it out; I just trimmed it away along with the wavy hem.
No one will ever suspect the problems this fleece once had.
