I know it's been a while! Life has just been a little more stressful than it's needed to be over the last two weeks, so crafting has kind of been pushed to the back burner.
I have, however, been working on the crocheted blanket and am pleased to report it is now finished:
Well, except for all of those tiny little ends that need to be sewn in still. I guess that's the worst part about crocheting in stripes!
In other news, I am returning to work full-time as of today. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, but I'm pretty sure waking up at 3.45am will make the day feel twice as long as it needs to!
