I just finished crocheting Nathan's blanket! I've been working on it since April 10th. I started on it while we were in West Virginia, visiting family. It's my first major project, as I just started learning on January 30th, 2014. I'm proud of it. A little uneven, some tension problems, but I'm a beginner. I have a feeling that Nathan loves it, regardless of the flaws.
It abruptly stops, because the yarn immediately changed from blue to pink, instead of slowly becoming white, so I stopped it there, symbolizing the abrupt end of my pregnancy (on the left side). Not yet finished, as I'm going to add October's birthstone, and hopefully be able to find a "2011" charm.
For now, Nathan's blanket is sitting on the Ancestral Shrine, after I announced to him that I was done with his blanket. It felt good holding it against my chest. I think this blanket may be good for coping.
