This is one of the things that has been distracting me lately. I mentioned last week that I've been stalking baby-blogs and happily creating "lists" of things to make and create for my little July-Bean. After seeing these beautiful ripple blankets here, here and here I decided that I would make one too. Actually I think I imagined a beautiful scene with a finished blanket and a happy baby playing on it with the sun shining down on us, perhaps in a park somewhere with a picnic and a Mr Darcy-esque figure in the background riding on his Pony. Umm, yes, I may have got ahead of myself... and it remains to be seen whether finishing this blanket will instantly transport me into the zen Pride and Prejudice life that I imagine for myself, but Pride and Prejudice or not I am determined to finish it.
It's probably worth pointing out that while I may knit, I don't really crochet and I re-started this four times before finally working out the pattern. Currently I'm finishing a row every few nights - yep, it's very slow going but it's keeping me amused and away from the internet's Pregnancy-forums. I accidentally discovered the forums last week and they are a place you only want to go if you feel like committing pregnancy-suicide and dooming yourself to a week of stress, nausea and panic that your baby-bean will be delivered with two heads, five feet and a purple nose because you ate "x", "y" or "z" by mistake! It took me 20 weeks to find these forums and now that I've been there I have no intention of going back.
