If you read my blog regularly, you know I end up writing world's longest posts a lot of the time. In fact, I showed yesterday's post to almost-a-papa and he said, "Is all of that one post? Why is it so long?" I can't help it. I get talking to you and I find that I have so much to say.
You'd think when you're writing epic posts that there would be no way to forget the most important details ... like a link to the pattern or the yarn you're using or stuff like that. Ha! You'd be wrong. I proved it with yesterday's post.copyright 2013, all rights reserved*
You can get all of those details in the Pepperonio's Baby Blanket
project on Ravelry. If you crochet or knit then you need to be on Ravlery. It's free. It's run by people who love running a site about knitting and crocheting. It's amazing AMAZING amazing.
If you've ever seen a knitting pattern in a book or a magazine and wondered:
"What would that look like on a normal person who looks kind of like me?"
"Is this easy to make?"
"Can you make this in a different kind of yarn successfully?"
Then Ravelry is going to blow your mind. I know it's blown mine.*Andrew (his site can be NSFW) took this photo of me while we were out last weekend. Didn't even notice he was taking my picture and didn't find out until we got home and he was reviewing the day's photos.
It makes me super happy that I look adorably wistful when I'm lost in thought. My hands are full-squee. I look exactly how I feel. Which isn't always the case. When I was still dating, I had a guy friend help me with my seductive looks. When I showed him my best attempt, he said, "It looks like you're doing math in your head." Haha - that explains a lot.
