there and back again...
Do you ever feel like you're surrounded by pregnancy? Maybe it's just the state of affairs when you're thirty. So, the latest to join the pudding club is my college roommate and her husband. Paul and I are determined to get them to name this baby boy Ambrose (his father's middle name, and probably the best middle name in history). This blanket will be for him. It's a diamond cable pattern that I charted for myself when not quite able to find the right cable for the blanket I had in mind (I'm a cable-knitting freak, but very particular). Which led to me starting from scratch and designing the blanket in it's entirety. The project has traveled with me halfway around the world and back again, and was finished while watching the entire series of Firefly. I've even devised my own new cable techniques in the process. Now that's it's blocked and the pattern is opened up, I'm so happy with it and proud to give it to little Ambrose when he arrives. Maybe a matching hat will be in order as well...
