“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”  Douglas Adams

If you read my last post, you know I had started a baby blanket, which was vexed by catastrophic gauge issues.  I scrapped that mess, since I didn’t want to stitch such angry vibes into a baby gift, and I started the same basic design over in nice, controllable granny squares.  Can’t mess up gauge that much in such a small block, to my way of thinking.  Since then, a very nice thing and a very not-nice thing have happened.  Nice thing:  the baby was born!  Beautiful little Kelsie, whose mother put in the order for her baby blanket as soon as she announced Kelsie’s impending arrival.  Not-nice thing:  I developed a lousy case of bronchitis, had to cancel a trip that would have provided a few good solid hours of road stitching time, and haven’t still finished the blanket.  In all fairness to me, Kelsie’s a mite early (a week or two, I think), and I’m utterly certain that I could have caught up in time.  However, the fact remains that my cousin has produced a baby, and I have not as of yet produced a blanket.  I have a sneaking suspicion that I will be denied baby visitation until said blanket is produced.  I also suspect that the bronchitis might extend that window a bit, since I can’t get near the munchkin while this sick.  63 squares down, won’t think about how many more to go (the last blanket was around 160-ish…)
