Crochet Dilemma, Must be Monday

I'm calling today mindless Monday.  All my creative energy from the weekend has taken a nose dive.  I put all of my ongoing projects away and started yet another one this weekend.  It was my plan to make a baby blanket, and 30 x 6 inches later, I'm not happy with the way it's going.  It's a simple pattern, double crochet and chain stitch, but what possessed me to think this was going to work for a baby blanket?  I don't think anyone wants a baby blanket with holes in it, no matter how pretty it looks; I certainly don't. 

So, it looks like I will be taking this completely apart and starting again; however, as to what to do now....I have no idea.  I'm sure I'll figure it out, but it's definitely going to take a lot more coffee.  So many possibilities, do you have any ideas for this lovely variegated yarn?  Do you have projects that aren't speaking to you today?  Don't worry, just blame it on Monday.


  1. None of my friends have babies so whenever I find a cute baby item I favorite it to store for later (two weddings this summer so maybe babies soon?). I like these two blankets: (the ribbon makes it extra adorable) and

    Good luck!

  2. Oh, I love them!, especially the Tiramisu one. I bought a bunch of cotton yarn and didn't know what I was going to do with it, so now I have 2 blankets to make, lol. Thank you very very much, and I hope you get to make them soon too...weddings definitely mean babies, lol.
