I’ve been working on a baby blanket for my new niece. It will be a nice sized blanket that I hope she’ll be able to use for some time as she grows up. I’m hoping it will be something she will cherish as she grows older and maybe even one day give to her daughter.
When I got back from one of my trips to Melbourne I was having tons of trouble trying to find work. It was job applications coming out of my ears kind of trouble. And no luck to shake a cat at. And, as my partner can attest to, I was getting thoroughly restless and bored out of my skin.
So I decided to take up a project and teach myself, of all things, to crochet. The decision wasn’t completely out of left field. I had to pick a craft (and I had decided it had to be a craft) that I could do using the tools I already had. I was working on a budget here, come on! Anyway, my sister had left a couple of crochet hooks and a bag of yarn in my room from, like, yonks ago. Figured that’s a good place as any to start.
