By some miracle, I do manage to snag a moment or two here or there to work on some sort of crochet. I've found myself putting away the grannies for a while and working only on my ripple blanket, just because that ripply-ness can really ease away the stresses with all that repetition. Grannies you have to stop and start. Ripples you just keep on, waving to and fro. Now I know why people like to do shawl ministries. You can get some awesome praying done over a long row for a blanket. I say that, but here recently, I finished another "batch" of baby grannies for a blanket that will hopefully end up on Victoria's bed before she's a teenager. I'm loving the progress. No pics yet, but I'll take some soon.
I have also made some slow but steady progress on the ripple, but it's a very large blanket, designed to cover a queen sized bed (or drape over a full-size bed), so it'll take me a while. Here's how it looks so far:
Then I had the delicious opportunity to make some baby stuff for a friend who is delivering her first wee one in the next few weeks. I will not deny that I flagrantly stole this design from Amy over at Nana Company. Hers is way cooler than mine, but I had a baby package to go out and desperately wanted something hand-done to throw in there, so when I saw her little bib, I just....well, I copied. :) Imitation is the best form of flattery, eh? At any rate, it was FUN to make, made me long for another wee babe of my own. I hope baby Audrey enjoys it.
Time to get back to stitching. I hope you are all doing lovely.
