Completed Project: Hexagon Baby Blanket

Here’s a baby blanket I just made for my hair stylist. She’s due next month, and I since I couldn’t remember if it was a girl or a boy or if she even told me or knows herself, I used a gender neutral blue/green/yellow/white color scheme:

It was a pretty easy/quick pattern, and I already had the yarn on hand. Am I yarn hoarder? Well….you tell me!

It is nice to have yarn laying around…especially when you decide on the spur of the moment to make someone a gift. I’ve made more than one baby blanket for an expectant mom, simply because I happened to have the yarn sitting in my stash. I usually stock up on yarns that I like when it’s on sale – it’s rare that I go out and buy specific yarn for a specific project.

I am getting better about the ongoing simultaneous project problem though. Oh you’re not familiar? That’s when you keep starting projects before you’re finished with others, until you have like half a dozen sitting around in various stages of completeness. I really hate doing that so I try to keep it to a minimum. I’d say I have two really active projects going right now, and two more sort of hibernating. That’s not bad at all – for me. I think this is something that happens to people with all kinds of hobbies, not just crochet or knitting.

In non-crafty news, I’ve got health problems that are going to sideline me for a bit. I potentially need to have some minor surgery and I’m not sure when yet. If that happens, I’ll surely be crocheting while I recover, but maybe not writing about it as regularly!
