I finished!

My baby blanket project is complete! Can you believe it? I really can't believe that the baby is receiving it before he turns one!


It still is a little wonky for sure, but I like it and I think it came out pretty well (especially for one of my first projects). Matt said that I've "got skillz!" (and yes, he specified the "z").



Once I got the pattern down, It really wasn't hard. It was truly just finding time to work on it. I started it in January and only did that one major tear-down. The only other true setback was because Olivia took to pulling the loose yarn out of the side of the basket I store it in resulting in a HUGE mess. It took Matt and I about 4 nights post-bedtime to sort and untie it all. Ugh! I found I really like doing crochet so I'm really thankful to my Mom for teaching me. It's an easy thing to pick up for a bit whenever I can and it's easy to do while talking to kidlets too!

What really got this finished was our Crafternoons (yep, I just made that up)! Ever since we made the knitting spool this week, Jack has wanted to get his workbook/school stuff done and then spend the rest of naptime together in the living room crafting. Works for me (together time AND project time)!!!

So guess what I did last night? Yep, I ordered the yarn for my next blanket...for the living room! I'm so excited to start!!!
