At any rate, I wanted to post a blanket I started for Esther back in November. This was before the gift avalanche, when I had nearly no girl things and was very worried because I didn’t want my little girl wearing boy castoffs from Ransom. So I decided to make an extremely girly blanket to wrap her in, and a little hat with a flower. The hat is now too small, but the blanket is done. I am trying to expand my life skills-set, and while the blanket is not perfect (I didn’t have long needles so made four knitted patches and crocheted them together, which I do not in the end prefer) it is fine and I learned a lot. Several different stitches, edgings, and the very fun and actually easy crocheted flowers.
How could this take so long to post, you ask? Because everything I do now must be broken into its smallest component parts to get done. I can only often accomplish one tiny step at a time. so try to keep track of where I am on all the steps for every task. So with posting this, for example, first I needed to finish the blanket, which is an entire set of steps itself. Then I needed to take pictures of it. Then I needed to put those pictures on the computer. Then I needed to email them from one computer to the other because I don’t usually use the one we upload pictures to. Then I needed to fix a problem with my WordPress plugins to even get to be able to enter a post, which required resetting my hosting password and submitting a help ticket. And, finally, I was here.
That’s how it is with everything, these days.
