I've spent the past few weeks working on the crocheted baby blanket for Spot. Yup, the brown one. Somebody in my knitting circle pointed out that it will camoflauge baby messes quite well. Yet another bonus of the chosen color, I guess. I've got about 20 inches done, and I need to get it to 30 before doing the edging. It is all single crochet and admittedly a little boring. But on the bright side, I can watch the T.V. and listen to DH while working on it without losing my place. I really love the yarn (Blue Sky Organic Cotton), which is amazingly soft. Plus being crocheted it is very sturdy and thick, which should make a nice blanket for the winter time.
I went to the orthodontist this morning to get my retainer tightened. When they went to schedule my next appointment in 9 months, they asked if I wanted the usual 7 am time. I suddenly realized that it will be December and the odds are that I'll have a baby and be on maternity leave so a later time would be better. It was just so strange to think of that as a reality.
