I mentioned in this post, about making a baby blanket. We recently learned my nephew and his wife (the ones I made this afghan for) are pregnant. Well, actually, SHE'S pregnant. He'll be there for moral support. Immediately after learning the news, I started looking for ideas for baby things. I felt like that's what a crafty Grauntie (since we're not sure if I'll be a great or grand aunt.....) should be doing.

You see what I've done here, gathered yarn. Stash yarn to be exact. Why? you ask. Because I want to start this Spice of Life Blanket. It's not that I NEED another project. I especially don't NEED another project at this time of year. I don't NEED another project cutting into my pre-Christmas crafting time.
But. Someone shared their blanket on Ravelry. Which lead me to this thread and after seeing all the BEAUTIFUL blankets. AND. Thinking this would be a great stash busting project. Which is something that needs to be done with a lot of the acrylic yarn I've gathered over the years......well......I'm pretty sure I'm going to be starting a new afghan soon.
Even though I will be starting this CAL a little late. Quite late, actually. I really, REALLY think I should get started soon!
So, I'll be dividing up what precious little crafting time I have between my Woodsmoke (which I'm over halfway through the yoke) and a baby blanket I recently started (I'll give you a sneak peak soon) and NOW this afghan. As well as a few other projects along the way......Crafting is like some sort of an addiction I tell you....But a good addiction. Wouldn't you agree?

Over a week ago, I reported in this post, that I was going to make a bit of a change in the pattern instructions. Well, I've FINALLY gotten back to sewing on this project so, I thought I would explain what I meant.
