I’m sorry it has been a while since I’ve posted. Finals have consumed my entire life and, honestly, I haven’t had much to report. Well, that’s a lie. I did finally find a job! I think I’ll actually be able to incorporate it into this blog in a way. My new employer is a funky, gourmet grocery store so I know there will be a bunch of fun, little things to talk about. There’s a whole wall of gourmet ice cream pints, for heaven’s sake! The public needs to know!
I did finish one project, though.
So about a month and a half ago I was contacted by a friend of a friend on Facebook who said that she had seen my blog and was wondering if I would make a blanket for her to give to her 5-month old grandson. She said that she understood that I’m still an amateur but that she gave each one of her daughters a crocheted blanket when they were young and she wanted to continue the tradition with her first grandson. I liked the idea of having something I made be part of something significant to someone else, so I agreed.
I just finished today and we’re still negotiating price and sorting details, but I was so proud of my petite blanket that I thought I would share some pictures.
