Boy, Have I Been Yarning Along!


Well, gang, having nearly finished my diabetic education classes and nearly recovered from the plague, I am finally back, and I have certainly missed you all!  While I was bed-ridden (well, recliner-ridden) with bronchitis, and blessed that my Good Man husband was home to take care of the SuperToddler, I have been crocheting like some kind of machine and tearing through books at an alarming rate.  I didn't have the energy to do anything else, but especially once the cabin fever set in, I had to do something to occupy my time!  I tried a bit of knitting, as well, but let me just say from experience, when you're really sick is not the best time to try and practice a new skill.  I quickly went back to what I know best.


As you can see, the result was certainly substantial!  I now have three finished baby blankets for the local charity, and am about 1/3 of the way through a fourth.  Now that I've done a few of them, I understand even better why my mother always enjoyed making these so much, and her insistence that they work up really quickly.  My first one was rather a long slog, but I've gotten much faster at it by now.  Next big project--crocheting a new set of cotton dishcloths for my wonderful mother-in-law's birthday (good thing she's not a big fan of surfing the internet, so she doesn't really read my blog).  It's good to be back from the undead!
