It's Finished~

No, no I did not abandon my blog. Some of my viewers (daughter =) ) told me to get going on this blog. Lol. So this morning I finished up my unborn grandson's baby afghan. He will be here very soon. I was done with the blankie but I just had to do the finishing touches on it. You know, the weaving in of the tails and all of that good stuff. I do think it turned out really nice. To bad I don't know of a little girl being born because this would look really pretty with the pink and white. I'm keeping the pattern in case I'm in the need to hurry and make someone a baby blankie. This was an easy blankie to make. At the beginning I was having a little bit of some difficulty but then got in on the third try. Don't you just love "getting," meaning the pattern of a new project. That's like the best thrill of the whole process. Sometimes I'll even get bored with a new project that I've just begun. I'll be so glad that I "got" the pattern and just set it to the side to pick it back up months later. Maybe because I'm a self taught crocheter. So when I understand the pattern, I'm like "Yes! I did it, I got it!!" Sometimes the pattern is to hard for me and I'll go ahead and return the yarn. But that is after many, many tries and lots of swearing. =) My family know when I'm starting a new project and I'm not understanding the pattern after many tries. Anyway enough blabbering. Here are the pictures of the finished project. And just think, next month I'll be holding my new grandson in this soft blue and white blankie. You can click on the photos to enlarge. I'm not sure what my next project will be so the next time I post, hopefully I'll have an idea of what I want to make next. Have a wonderful and blessed Easter! Happy Easter!

The afghan is beautiful! I've never had that talent, so I appreciate so much when I see the beauty created by others! Kudos!
I got chills when I read '...next month I'll be holding my new grandson in this soft blue and white blankie."
Such beautiful sentiments.
