Wishful Thinking

If you follow the rest of my blogs, you will know that I am currently in a resurgence after a blogging hiatus. As I explained in my health and fitness related place, I've been suffering from a general over-lode of life and a liberal sprinkling of depression. (Self Diagnosed)

My husband and I struggle with infertility. We have been trying to start our family for... oh... 6? Years now.. I think. It's begun to run together. Sometimes I think I might just collapse from watching everyone around me have babies.

Sometimes I try and find ways of coping. Often, those ways involve making things for our future babies, however we might come by them.

This is a blanket I made not too long ago when I was going through a particularly down moment. It's a lovely lace pattern knitted with some soft worsted weight yarn. I love the colors. They are a bit on the feminine side, but I'm not one for color coding children. My favorite color has always been blue, and I wouldn't find a boy who's favorite color is pink to be any less masculine.

Right now, I'm going through another hard spot. So I once again have reached for my yarn to help me get through it. I'm making another baby blanket. This one is crochet and it is the lovely ripple pattern by Lucy at Attic24.  I've chosen white and blue in uneven, yet rhythmic ripples. There will be pictures soon.
