I went to the fabric store the day after I wrote this and found yarn that I *had* to buy for this baby blanket. The pink, purple, white and blue combo reminds me of cherry blossoms. Perfect color combo for a spring baby. I really like how it turned out.
It must be noted that it took me 3 weeks to make, but I finished in time for the baby shower.
I am determined not to let having a baby kill my craftiness. I need to have about 17 projects going at all times for me to feel useful. I know this is irrational, I don’t care. Irrationality is part of my charm, just ask my husband.
Crocheting seems like the easiest thing to do at this point. It doesn’t take a lot of effort and I can rock a baby and do it at the same time. I think the only problem is going to be keeping my hands from feeling like they are going to fall off. My wrists are already sore from carrying a baby around all the time. My hands are either going to get stronger or I am going to have arthritis at the ripe age of 27. I am sure repetitive motion of crocheting will help (okay maybe not).
This is going to become a baby blanket. I have a goal of finishing it within a week. I will let you know how utterly unrealistic that is when I update this post next month and haven’t finished it yet.
