You will all have to forgive me today. I'm a little giddy. You see, I've had quite a shock. I finally got the ambition to dig out my summer clothes from last year and try them on. I absolutely couldn't believe it. They fit!! Not only fit, but there is a little, (ok, very little,!) wiggle room. With my seemingly steady weight gain over the past few years, I honestly thought nothing would still fit. I have purposely put off sorting things out and trying them on for that reason, not wanting to give myself anything else to feel bad about. But, thankfully, I have had a pleasant surprise! But, to be quite honest, the fact that everything still fits won't stop me from adding to my wardrobe! Besides, summer clothes are quick and easy to whip up, so I'm sure I'll have a few little tops, skirts and shorts added to my wardrobe before long!
But, as promised in the title of the post, on to something different. I have just finished this little carriage blanket for a friend's baby. She is having twins, a girl and a boy, so I'll be making another blanket in the same crochet design, in pink and white. I just love this pattern. It is so incredibly easy to do, and it whips up in no time. It is something you can do while watching t.v, without concentrating on it. I have made so many of these blankets in all sizes, that I have lost count! It is a great way to use up bits of wool and yarn, and no matter what or how many colours you use, it is always pretty. And of course, the softer the wool you use, the better!
Do you think she'll like it? I hope so! The twins are due in October, just in time to need soft, cosy blankets to snuggle up in! Have a great day everyone! Anne
