Christmas lights, Snowfalls, and Fairies

Finally put my Christmas lights out earlier this week. Just took me a little bit to post the pictures. As you can see on the normal camera setting you can't see a whole lot.

So, I put the camera on "Night" setting and realized that my hands shake like crazy! *laugh* But hey, you can see the lights a little better!

We had our first snowfall of the season on Wednesday. What a day that was! It snowed on and off all day long and of course the county that I worked for did NOT call in for a delay, or a closing, and even after everyone understood how slick the roads were, they didn't close school early! What normally takes me about 25 minutes to get to work took me 1 hour and 45 minutes that morning!! And my poor little Honda was all over the road!

Look how pretty it looks!!

I have finally finished knitting all the squares the my nieces blanket!! Now I'm just trying to lay out the squares so that no row has double the color or double the fairy pattern. It's not working out so well. It seems that I can either do one of the other, but now both.

I'm thinking of framing each square in black with single crochet and then sewing the squares together. Once the squares are sewn together I will either knit or crochet the rest until it's sized for a twin bed. Would it look funny if black was used to frame the squares and no where else in the blanket?? Or should I just frame them all in the royal purple and forget about the black completely?? I really would like suggestions!!

I think framing it all in black would be wonderful. It would really compliment the colors and fairies imo.

personally I think framing it in black would be amazing. The colors are bright enough that the black would let them pop!
