It has been ages since I last participated in a Show and Tell on Kelli's blog, mainly because I seldom have any computer time on Fridays. But today I got up early, so I have an opportunity to share with you this baby blanket, which I started making before Shira was born. I finally finished it a few days ago, and I'm so happy with it.
I originally planned to make it in the blue-ish yarn only, but soon realized I don't have enough, and if you believe it, they ran out of it in my usual yarn supplies store too. So I was forced to introduce the second color; it turned out better than I expected. I used a pattern out of an old Russian knitting&crocheting magazine which used to belong to my Mom but found a home here with me when I got married. It has beautiful step-by-step guides to different stitches, and delightful illustrations. Hmm, here's an idea for another Show and Tell... if I ever have time on another Friday.
I can't wait to start my next project. Last time, I bought some beautiful wool and mohair yarn. It was on sale and I just couldn't pass it. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do with it, but whatever it is, I know it will be wonderfully soft and warm.
Naturally, with a two-month-old around here, I have less time for crafts, but I don't think I could ever entirely give up crochet. Even a few stitches every day are so very relaxing and satisfying.
