I haven't been terribly bloggy lately because I decided to get crafty. This is partly due to the fact that I got stuck on the novel (stupid writer's block) and partly due to the fact that I found the most amazing baby afghan EVER on pinterest.com:
So, I decided to make one for baby #2, should there be one. This is an awesome project for me, because a flower takes me a little less than 20 minutes to crochet, which means I can do as little or as many as I would like at a time. I am doing a five-petal flower instead of a six, and I think I may add some leaves here and there, but this is the general idea. I am super excited about it.
I love the I Love This Yarn yarn from Hobby Lobby, but we don't have a Hobby Lobby here in the Northworst. It's super soft and has some really pretty colors... And it's super affordable.
