Crocheting Along

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.

Looks good Jen! The pics don't really show the true color of that yarn though - it looks even better in person!

I think the blanket is coming along nicely. What do old ladies in the yarn store know anyway. That color is beautiful for a baby. It is funny to think about long term with baby isn't it?

The blanket is gorgeous - I'm sure Spot will love it and be so cute all snuggled up in it :)

My weird realization moment today (which I was reminded of by your appointment time story) was when I thought about next Easter when I'm be able to play E. Bunny, and Santa, etc...craziness.

The blanket is really pretty...beautiful work! The color looks more grey than brown though in the picture...great job!

To think we'll have a baby in our homes in just 6 short months...WOW!
