"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Crocheting success!

I ended up undoing that baby blanket I talked about because I realized the sides were totally uneven. I definitely counted wrong or added extra stitches or something. But that's totally okay, because I ended up doing a bunch of smaller things while I waited for some new yarn and crochet hooks (A friend said I should order online. Silly me never thought about that before! So now I can pick out my own yarn. Yay.).

It really bothered me that I never finished a baby blanket, so I started again with a different pattern when the new yarn arrived. And here it is! I love, love, love it. Logan says it's girly but oh wellll.
(It cracks me up to see Marley's head in the corner of the picture. Lazy dog.)
Here are a couple of the baby beanie hats I made. There are some other small things I did but I don't have pictures...
Definitely one of the good things to come out of this modified bedrest nonsense is that I learned to crochet. I'm pretty sure that I never would have taken the time to learn otherwise!


  1. you should make scarfs....those should be pretty easy now, and they make good homemade gifts!

  2. That's definitely next on my list as soon as I get new yarn! All I have now are baby colors :)

    Yay!  I'm a little envious!  Not on bed rest + running 16 month old = hardly any time to learn something so cool!!  Glad to see you have found a "purpose" of sorts for bed rest :)
