So, for the Blog and Crochet week post today, we are supposed to revisit a project from the past. Well, I decided to chronicle the life of a blanket that I made over the course of about 6 months or so. I had started one “Big Bad Baby Blankets” in a sportweight yarn (Lorna’s Laces sport)I had to adjust the gauge with my math fu. But, it came out quite lovely. I had NO plans for it at the time. I figured that one of my co-workers would have a baby sooner or later and I’d have a gift for them. I worked on it here and there, in between larger, more complex projects and really didn’t concentrate on it too much. Somewhere along the line, I found out I was expecting. Yes, me! At the time my youngest was 9 almost 10. I was not expecting that news! It turned out that the blanket I was knitting became a blanket for my own baby. It is one of his favorites and it has been very well loved. I don’t have a picture of it currently, but if I think of it, I will take one later today. It’s been washed and loved and it still looks fabulous. It’s quite lightweight so it was a good swaddler. It was breathable, yet warm and my son LOVES to snuggle it. So, sometimes, even when a project doesn’t have a purpose to begin with, it finds one along the way.
