Pooled Baby Blanket

It has been a while.

I have been knitting and crocheting as much as ever, but blogging has not been happening recently because my toddler hates when I try to use my computer.  She climbs into my lap and then hits keys and fiddles with stuff on my desk until I give up.  She makes it impossible to type up anything, including patterns.  But, I did manage to get this post up quickly today.

She’s adorable, and I really should be playing with her instead, so I don’t mind too much.  I do have a backlog of projects to share.

I finished this blanket back in November and gave it to a good friend who recently welcomed a second son.  I love it so much.
