Eighteen Days Until Advent
Here it is...all completed with 18 days to go until Advent. My own Adventskalendar! I started this back in January with scraps of yarn in my stash...I decided to repeat the white mitten in a certain pattern with the other mitten colors. I don't know if you can catch the order of how I worked it but it does flow in a certain way.
I was able to finish the embroidery and make the chain while Miss America was sick on Monday. I hung it up by the fireplace as soon as it was done.
#1 Son was impressed and I told him I'd put chocolate in each mitten to help countdown advent. We've always had chocolate advent calendars as I married a chocoholic and gave birth to 2 chocoholics...they literally have to eat it every day.
So, I asked #1 Son what kind of chocolate he wanted in the mittens...he responded in all seriousness "Lindt, please". Did I mention they are discriminating chocoholics?
I won't be hanging this by this particular fireplace as the heat it pumps out during a fire would melt the chocolate...we'll move it to a fireplace we don't use.
