Help me decide if I'm going to be "good" or not...
I've got an ongoing WIP that is on track to be a multi-year project. A throw blanket for MH. it's huge. I make sporadic progress, and I still love it so it's not in UFO land, but it's definitely slow moving.
In the last few weeks I've learned that two coworkers are expecting. I made blankets for both of their first babies. I really kinda want to make blankets for these second babies too...but I mean...I already set his blanket aside for last year's round of babies (people keep having those) so doing it again this year seems gratuitous.
wwyd? Does your answer change if I can make the blankets from stash? (not sure if I can or not, but I suspect I can)
How’s this logic: Babies are only babies briefly, but your H will appreciate the blanket whenever it happens. I’d make the baby blankets. Plus maybe a change would make you feel more motivated about the long-term project.
I started a baby blanket. I'm pretty sure I looked like a total gremlin coming out of the basement with my arms full of stash yarn trying to be casual. MH was like, "NOW WHAT?" (I was knitting socks the other day...and I have two UFO hats in a bag for when I need a travel crochet project) and just laughed at me when I was all sheepish like, "well, e is pregnant again. And I have enough leftover yarn from the first one to make another...sooo..."
and then I stayed up way too late last night getting it started. (took three tries to get the first row right because I can't count, and then I decided the pattern is too small after I'd started round 2 (as usual), and then I decided to use a chainless foundation, and then I decided that wasn't going to work well for this particular pattern (it's a wave stitch and it was taking way too much concentration to do foundation HDCs, DCs and SCs in pattern so I couldn't read my book while working, so I had to start all over again, and then finally got it right by adding three repeats to the pattern)
