I said I was working on a project and actually finished it! Amazing.
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’ve been busy. Holidays and parenting and just life in general.
Then I had an idea for a penguin ornament. I made one for each kid. I know they’re not monkeys, but they made it to the top of the blog anyway. Maybe next year I’ll do monkeys.
Last October I put together a large box of hats and blankets and sent it to a hospital. They used the hats and blankets for babies who were stillborn and for preemies in their NICU. A few months later, I sent another box of hats.
Whenever the mood hits me, I make a little hat or blanket. I finally filled another large box. Before sending it to the hospital, I took pictures.
