This New Years Eve I didn’t make any Resolution’s. I don’t really need to, I guess. I’m not to my goal weight, but I’m getting there. I’m trying to be a better housewife. I already have my Master’s Degree so I’m good there. Etc Etc. But what I did make were Intentions. I Intend to read more this year. Sebastian was born February 1, 2012 and so reading this last year hasn’t happened much. I also Intend to make MYSELF more things. Yes, selfish. But I’ve really not made myself much…and have Never made myself a blanket! And to make more things for Sebastian. I’d started a sweater for him before he was born and what with everything going on…and making so many things for other people…it was finished in November…and didn’t exactly fit. I also Intend to keep learning to knit and to sew!
Anyways, back to the Afghan! Last year either right before, or right after, my little Prince was born, I joined this CAL. Shouldn’t be hard, I figured…a few pieces a week. It started off good! I got the first 2 clues done on time and then…nothing. He got more mobile, I had things to make for others, and we moved. So after making my New Years Intentions I remembered this blanket and I pulled it out.
I LOVE this yarn. I remembering finding it a month or two before the CAL and just squishing it every time I’d go by the display…but I wasn’t sure what I’d do with it yet. Until…I found the Mystery CAL. Problem solved. It’s taken me less than a month to complete it and I even added my own border to it. I LOVE IT.
I’ve not been able to take any GOOD pictures yet…lol…so these will have to do. The top one I just think is too funny. The whole time I was making it, Sebastian would try to grab it. I told him as soon as I was done, he could “have” it. And the morning after I finished, when he grabbed it and I didn’t stop him he was sooooo happy. He ran around his area, dragging it behind until he tuckered himself out. He’s not sleeping…eyes are open…but he needed a bit of a breather! LOL The other’s were my sad attempt to stretch it out and at least get a bit of a picture to show…but even then every time I did Sebastian would walk onto it and sit and grab it! Once I managed to get him to the side…Willow decided it looked nice, too. *sigh* Ah well…you can at least get an idea!!
