these past few days I've been getting some yarn love in with this pretty little blanket.
A clean work space makes me super happy :) All while watching the telly... productivity is awesome.
okay. so it doesn't always look this clean *blushes* but it did when I first started, then you know, life happens.
Especially since Mr.handsome and i eat at our coffee table regularly, i always have to push balls of yarn aside etc. hey, he married a grandma. lucky guy. :P
A new ergonomic hook makes whipping up a pretty blanket so much easier. I kept asking myself why I hadn't purchased one of these long ago? Maybe it was the price tag. But it was sure worth it. My arms are extremely delighted. :)
A little bit of sunshine coming through the windows... i know I'm perfectly crazy for crocheting in the hot summer like days here in san diego. but hey, i think it was worth it :)
have a look:
I am so very happy with this little blanket. It turned out to be a cute 40 x 40 inches big. I am pretty happy thinking it might be the perfect gift for my little girl someday. I have this thing now to start making my little one cute things out of yarn. It's pretty much an obsession. This was the first thing I dreamed up and I am so very happy to say that it turned out just the way i dreamed it. Bright and happy. Now my only fear is that in say 70 years after i'm long gone or something :) my kids will give this away to goodwill or amvets. I'm okay with giving other blankets away that I too have purchased at a thrift store for $2. But not this one. Oh goodness! AH! can you imagine?! Spending what seems endless hours lovingly making something only to be found at a store for way less than it's worth?! I have forewarned mr.handsome and our nonexistent children. now mr.handsome of course pointed out something i completely never thought about.
if our kids end up anything like mr.handsome, he is always hot. I mean yeah, he's hot and fine in a handsome sexy kinda way but hot like he NEVER needs a sweater or blanket. oh. that would be devastating.
on the other hand, if our children are anything like me and need a blanket not just for keeping warm but love the safe feeling of a soft blanket, then we're good. Here's hoping right?
Here's hoping they are sentimental like me. Here's hoping they think about me making the blanket for them. Thinking about what they would be like. Hoping they love it as much as i do.
I think i should better write it down in a will or something. :)
just in case. ha!
