A few months after I had my own Little O, I realised that I had made so many things for other people's children that I hadn't really made anything for him. And yes it's taken me almost a year and a half but I have finally made something for him... a nice warm winter blanket. I have made quite a few of this style of blanket for friends babies (thank you Lucy from Attic 24 for a wonderful pattern. See here for more details http://attic24.typepad.com), and I always meant to make him one it was just me getting around to it that was the problem. I had purchased the wool several months back and I finally decided in March that I was going to make it and that it had to be done before winter. So I started and when ever I had time I would whip it out and crochet. I just loved the repetitiveness of the pattern. It was almost like going into a meditative state, instead of repeating a small mantra, I would repeat the stitch over and over again.

|I really like how this edging turned out. I ended up doing three rows of double crochet or single crochet (depending on what side of the world you are from), but working into the back loop only.|
