There is a baby. He showed up before his blanket was finished. This is mostly due to the fact that I was busy moving and remodeling and had forgotten al about it until said baby was about to arrive.
In a very interesting coincidence I seemed to have started the blanket just as soon as mama was going into labor. Like, within minutes of each other!
Little baby boy is currently waiting for his parents to discover his name, and his blanket is currently waiting for its last 3 stripes (never mind the ends that will need to be woven in). Perhaps he is waiting for his blanket to be done, not to show up (obviously!), but to receive his name. Maybe I’m getting a little all out in the universe about it. Only time will tell. In the mean time, I shall knit on, and hopefully he will have his name and blanket soon.
