Just Be Happy

Hello there!

I am sorry for the lack of lack posts, but you know how life is... sometimes it gets so busy and out of control that we lose track of things. Anyhow, I was able to finish the 7th blanket and I feel really fortunate that my friend took over and is in charge of making the remaining blankets - what a relief! Lately Lucas is giving us a lot of trouble at night, he's teething and we suspect that he is going through a growth spurt, so he has been waking up and crying a lot... which means that my husband and I have been extremely tired and sometimes even a little grumpy. Well, I hope that's just a phase and that it will pass soon.
Back to the crochet talk, since my friend is tackling the remaining blankets, I was able to move on to the custom order, so here is a picture of my work in progress. The bag has to be made 30% larger, that's how much it will shrink. So, every time I have to make something that will be felted I always try my best measuring everything, because there is only one change of making things right, once it's felted there is no way to fix anything.

I'm already on my 3rd 100g skein, I'm so proud I bought more yarn that I thought I would need, because apparently I will need all of it!

Well, now I better get going... I am going to Ikea with a few friends, we are all taking our little ones along - it should be fun. :o)

Have a great day!


  1. 7 blankets is a lot! That's such a great friend to help you out like that. I know the bag will be wonderful. Looks like you're on your way!

  2. The blankets are beautiful! We dont have an Ikea here, I think I would get in to much trouble there. LOL Im having a Yarn Swap on my blog. Come check it out and tell your readers about it. The more the better! :D
