BLOCK 9 of 12 blocks of Xmas knitted blanket – OhLaLana!

Block 9: Polka Dots!

Hello my knitting friends!! I keep working hard for Yaguareté, to make sure all orders arrive in time for Christmas. But I also work hard for this KAL too 🙂 Today’s block IS NOT the original one that I have planned to publish today, but a new one. In a rush of inspiration, I decided yesterday that I wanted some knitted polka dots in this blanket (I loooove polka dots). So here I am, with my Polka Dots Block!! And it comes with a twist: you have to choose which side you like the most. 

Until Monday!
