Emmett's Blanket

I finished the baby blanket that I was working on. I finished it not long after my last post on Thursday but forgot to post again about it. Here I am, with a picture or two to show you!

Note: In the one picture I have my foot next to the blanket to give you an idea of how big it is. My foot is a standard size US womens 9.

I forgot to rotate the picture with my foot in it, but you get the idea how big it is. Emmett will be nice and warm in it and I'm happy it's finally finished, I can continue working on other things, like the next baby blanket I need to finish.

Okay, so everyone in my household, save for my fiance has been sick. I was sick Monday into Tuesday, and now both boys are sick. Luckily, its a beautiful day outside, so I've opened all the windows to get the "sick air" out and to bring the beautiful fresh air indoors. I have been working on a baby blanket for a friend, which will definitely need washing before I give it to her, so she doesn't get the sickly germs that are here. I just need to finish up the corner and put an edging around it. Will definitely post when it's finished.

Thanks, Mail Carrier is always hosting giveaways but this one by far is one of her best! The Out of the Box Sampler is so cool, and if it weren't currently sold out, I'd buy one along with entering her giveaway so go check it out! All the details are right here in her post: Out of the Box Sampler Giveaway!

So I've been sick since I first woke up Monday morning. Not a good way to start off National Crochet Month at all. I'm feeling better today and it helped that both my boys gave me at least four straight hours of sleep, followed by being up for an hour cuddling with the baby, then another three. I feel more rested than yesterday but I still feel awful, and I'm behind on housework too, ugh! I greatly dislike housework, but it needs to be done.

On the bright side, being sick gives me extra time to crochet, and I'm making good progress on my Summer Garden Squares. I'll definitely post pictures when the weather isn't so gloomy, the lighting is awful and the flash makes everything look washed out.

Have a good day!
