This is the blankie (lovey) I made for my baby boy. I knew it was an ambitious undertaking when I started it (well before he was born)… and I almost got it finished. But then he arrived and I had even less time to knit than before.
For a while I couldn’t face such a large undertaking. You know what it’s like when you’re a mother of small children. Sometimes you just need something that you can actually get finished. That big tick on your ‘to do’ list can be such an important thing when you spend your day dealing with constant interruptions. I needed small projects that could be finished in a day or two (hence my ‘hat’ phase).
Well, here it is, finished at last! And my baby is nearly two! I think it’s been worth the wait, though, to get it done just right. I’m pretty happy with it. I hope he is too!
