So, I am determined to do something new and completely different and still incorporate some of the squares. Otherwise, I would throw everything out because the pastels of years gone by do not really suit me anymore anyhow.
I will finish, though! And I will post pictures. Hopefully, the finished blanket will warrant the effort. I'm going to try to make my own pattern, but having not touched a crochet hook in 13 yrs, I am far from having enough experience to think I can pull it off without any hitches.
in other news, I'm going to cut up a pair of jeans I was counting on tossing in the bin anyhow and make myself a pair of maternity pants. I also have a tank-top that I made in Mayotte that needs a hem put on it. I had made it too large (this is me, always sewing without a pattern or making a mockup first), but now that I'm pregnant, it is perfect.
Lots to do now that I don't have a book occupying my mind...
