Blogging: Take Two

It has been a long time since I have posted, but I am back! A few things have happened to keep me from taking time to do much crocheting, much less blogging about it. The first thing that happened was that I had a really bad flare-up of fibromyalgia, the first one in about 5 years. Honestly, the brain fog of fibro is the worst part for me and if I can’t put a cohesive sentence together in my brain, I am most definitely not going to put something out on the web that doesn’t meet my standards of writing. Once the fog cleared, something even bigger happened…

Don’t mind the look on my face, this was about a week before my second son was born and it was somewhere between 90 and 100 degrees and humid outside: completely miserable weather for being nine months pregnant. I’ve had my hands full! He’s about a year and a half old now and my older son is in kindergarten. I am finally starting to be able to work on my business once again. I have made a few things since I found out I was pregnant: I had to make a baby blanket, of course! My first couple of posts will probably be sharing some of the patterns that I’ve used in the last two years.  I absolutely love the blanket I made for my little one. The pattern was very well written and beautiful. You can find it at www.lillabjorncrochet.com/2017/02/celtic-tiles-blanket-free-overlay.html While it is a great pattern, I do not recommend it for a beginner. It is rather complex and has advanced stitches in it. Since I was making a baby blanket, I didn’t use the same yarn as suggested. I used Bernat Softee Baby Cotton in Jade Frost. It is a 60/40 Cotton/Acrylic blend that was great to work with. Here is how it turned out:

My panels were much smaller since I used a smaller yarn and hook, so to save time I made plain panels as well.

Hopefully you enjoy the pattern, I hope to be back on again soon with more patterns and catching up from the past. Look out for some original patterns coming soon!
