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.
I was making progress on all of my Fall Baby Gifts, until I decided to give planned pooling a try.
I made four baby sets for friends earlier this year. These things seem to come in clusters, and here comes another. I know five people expecting babies in the next three months. Three of the babies are boys and two are of undetermined gender. Lots of blue.
I wanted to share a pattern to celebrate one year of blogging!
There’s probably some newfangled, made-up term like “blogiversary” which I’m supposed to use, but I’m already too old for stuff like that.
Recently, I have been trying to fight off a stubborn cold and I have been taking every opportunity to rest. Rather than taking on writing up a new pattern, I dusted off this already started patchwork blanket tutorial, added all the photos, and finished it just in time.
I feel like this has become my signature baby blanket.
I love making gifts for friends who are expecting babies. I have made four so far this year. Because they have all been given to the recipients, I can finally share photos!
I had to take a little break from tiny hats this morning to make a winter hat for Miss C. It turned into two winter hats.
I will share my donation a day progress again early next week, but… oh my goodness, this set!
