Fifth day and migraine free today!
What a relief to wake up this morning without that heavy load bearing down on me....never really had migraine before and now know what it is. Just absolutely no idea why...my doctor seems to think stress. I get the feeling the doctor's diagnosis of stress means "I don't know why you have migraine either "
Meanwhile during the lucid moments I have turned to my own therapy, crochet , and have finished this blanket I was making for a little winter babe....a babe who will be born on 30th December.... a beautiful New Year gift.....a little girl.
My nephew will be a grandfather at 40....they seem to get younger and younger!!!
This 12 point rainbow ripple star baby blanket pattern is by Celeste Young and can be found here on Ravelry
It was a breeze except for running out of the yarn in the middle of the process and having to order and wait for more of the right colour to arrive.
I used a 4:00 hook,Red Heart Soft Baby Steps Yarn in Aqua,Lavender,White, Strawberry and for each border Coats SMC Micro Grande in white,purple,mint green and soft pink.
I still had some leftovers of the yarns used so I decided to use them up making a little beanie for the newborn. I added earflaps to it and some ties and I was very pleased with the beanie when I finished it but I felt it needed something else, so I tried this and that but as soon as I saw the cutie little bear ears on Alison Cromwell's Newborn Baby hat pattern I knew I had to try them out.
I'm sorry but I am not sure now where I got the pattern from...I suspect from Ravelry.
From swap to swap:
I am still participating in the Autumn Glow swap hosted by Blueberry Heart and my swap parcel to my partner Helen at Moonstruck Creations was finally received three weeks ago.I did indeed go through a few anxious moments there thinking it was lost but it finally turned up at Helen's house,I am pleased to say. I wouldn't usually think of joining another swap until the one I am participating in has been completed but I enjoyed Tracy's Christmas Cracker swap at Mad about Bags last year so much that I want to do it again. I couldn't resist the temptation,so I'm in and on 11th November we will be assigned our partners!!!
If you would like to participate in Tracy's Christmas Cracker swap you still have time:
