Much like mamabear's skull-and-crossbones sweater for babybear, this is the project whose completion I felt was not a part of my lifetime reality.
I started this blanket before N was born hoping to have it in the crib for her homecoming. She was born two weeks early and I kept putting off working on it. I decided (seven and a half months later) that I didn't want to start the New Year without finishing the blasted thing, so that is how I spent New Year's Eve. I have to say the combination of pride and relief is weirdly and inappropriately overwhelming, but...IT IS FINISHED! Woot Woot!
