A girl's got a right to change her mind. Right?


So, I changed my mind about the girl blanket. For some reason the purple was just throwing me off, so I started another one with pink, gray, and natural......then my crazy pregnant brain kicked into overdrive and I thought about changing patterns, changing colors.....You get the idea. I finally decided to stick with what I had because I was obviously just going crazy and clearly incapable of making a rational decision. (That's not like me at all. I'm usually fearless when it comes to making decisions with colors or patterns!) 


Then I went to the store, sticking with my decision, to get more natural yarn.....and they didn't have it anymore! So I got to change my mind again, but it couldn't be helped. I got the new "natural" that they were selling (which is really off-white if you ask me) and when I got home I changed the order of the colors up just a bit and now the phycotic pregnant woman is happy. Very happy in fact! Now I'm thinking of making a little off-white dress with pink and gray flowers to match! Oh! Now it was worth being tortured by those mind changing hormones, because I have another project! And aren't those colors just perfect for a winter baby?!

The boy blanket is coming right along too, but I haven't yet decided on what outfit to make to match it yet. I'll keep you posted on that. :) xo, Sam

I like the new version better. So I don't think your crazy. Sometimes it just takes getting going on a project to realize its not quite right.

Ohhh, I really like this color combo better. The other one was beautiful too, but there was something about the purple that just overpowered the rest.

I am personally knee deep in my current love of gray and pink for my baby girl due in 4 more weeks, so I'm totally behind your choice! Gorgeous!

I love the changes and am thinking about picking up the same boy colors you are using for a blanket for my little boy, or maybe for my cousins baby boy due in December...the crocheting bug has bit. I would love a tutorial on the filled in granny square when you are able. I really love the way it looks. I am so happy for you and can't wait to see a picture of your little one wrapped in pink or blue!

Oh yeah, you're pregnant all right. Now you have a good excuse to change your mind as much as you want to. Jim's only complaints during my pregnancies were 1. I was clumsy (really bad) and 2. I never could make up my mind. I love all of the colors you have chosen and think it will be beautiful no matter what. Let me know if you have a baby shower so I can come. :)
