Appetite Fatigue

I've been so busy working on a new project. I've had a terrible case of startitis lately. I've just started projects all over the place. I had to invent places to keep the projects (or really, keep the kids out of them).

But I've settled down a bit, and have mostly been working on a baby blanket. My cousin is due in 4 or 5 weeks with twin girls (!!) and I decided that I must make them crocheted blankets. So yarn was carefully selected for the first one, and I've been working away on it ever since.

Have you ever heard of Appetite Fatigue - where you get tired of eating the same old thing over and over again? Well, see - I think I have Appetite fatigue with this blanket. It's made with light wight yarn, and a small hook, and it's just plain rows of double crochet. What was I thinking? I must have been off my rocker! I've employed my husband to bribe me into finishing it. We'll see if it works. I think the worst part is, I'm still not sure if I like the color combination. One day I'll be sitting there thinking how cute, and clever it looks, and the next I'll think it looks like utter tacky trash. Do you ever feel that way about a project?

*cry* I just realized.......once I'm done....I'll have to make's for twins you know...oh dear...what have I gotten myself into??

**Note to self: next time you want to make a baby blanket - banish any yarn smaller than worsted weight from your mind, woman!**
