Do you remember 2020? It was a hard year with lockdowns, disappointments and many other problems that we had to face unexpectedly. I’m not sure that, from our point of view, 2021 has been a lot better, but this year, at least, we have been able to see family.
Yesterday we had an unexpected visit from our younger grandson.
That wouldn’t have been possible a year ago.
We’ll see him again tomorrow – it’s the first time we will all be together since before Covid. Best of all it’s for a celebration.
It seems impossible that this tiny babe will turn one year old tomorrow! I announced his early arrival here.
We couldn’t celebrate last year – so it’s a good excuse for a family get-together.
The blanket was finished in good time for his arrival.
You can follow it’s progress via the picture above or THIS LINK.
I have the urge to make something similar, but first I have something else to complete.
This gives very little away. It’s the back and start of a sleeve for a little jacket. I’m starting with the boring bits – the fronts have stripes. It’s spurring me on to know that there is something ‘exciting’ around the corner. It won’t be finished by tomorrow, but if I can take the back and a sleeve I can judge for size and factor in any alterations.
Once it’s done I’ll get back to this.
I don’t think it minds taking a backseat for a little while.
