So the emails started coming, I want this, well how about this? Now like I said I don't normally make blankets but when she delivered that line in that email, "this is something I've wanted to do for him since I was pregnant but was never able to complete"(not quoting here) I was sold, hook, line and sinker, I was all in. I knew in my heart I NEEDED to do this for her.
She was nervous too, was she going to be scammed? Is it a joke? What is going to look like? Can she do what she says she's going to do? So every few days I would send her an email with an update and or picture to show her how it's coming along. And trust me, this blanket was tedious and frustrating. Every time I started, something went wrong. Nothing was turning out how I envisioned. Finally I just went for it. It looked like it would be a little narrow but it was going to work. She needed it for her two year old son. I told her it would probably take until May, but she kept dropping little hints that she wished it would be done in time for her son's birthday. I just knew I had to get it done for her, no questions asked. It had to be done by April 1st. It had to be there for his birthday. So I went all in, doubled up the yarn and knitted it up quick.
The emails still kept coming she kept checking in to see how her blanket was going. After a month long, I have finally finished this blanket. I personally HATE doing blankets, nothing against Conan and his mom, it's me, if I can't see results in a few hours, I start to lose my mind, like the project is dragging on and on and will never end. And as each week passed, and I finally got to the part where I was going to insert Conan's name, I knew I was in the home stretch.
I'm so glad I was able to do this for her. Here are progressive pictures. Like I said she emailed a lot and wanted pictures so I have so many of how this blanket came along. And in no way was it annoying at all. When I say the more descriptive you are the better, I mean it. This blanket wouldn't of turned out how she wanted it if she hadn't of been so vocal.
It went from this at the start of March.
