Our daughter is here. We're in the hospital and I managed to set "Crash Computer" as Order Of Business Number One (sigh), but I'll be back to business as usual in a couple of days. In the meantime, I set up a handful of posts…like this one on a project I finished just in time.
I started this blanket wayyyy back when we first announced that we were having a girl (I went for Liberty Wool #7824 Cupcake, and may have chosen #7837 Rodeo for a boy…or may have gone for Cupcake anyway, because I think it's gorgeous). Seven months is a very long time to be working on a single blanket…but I actually went for narrow needles and skinny yarn on purpose, because the thing about knitting projects is that I don't really do them to "make stuff" - I do them because I find them crazy-relaxing, and a great thing to do with your hands when you're watching TV, and am always bummed when they're done.
Anyway, I'm done. Which is good, because now I have something else to do with my hands: hold a baby.
