It is Simplicity 9505.
I had the flannel. I picked out a funky pattern for fun. I made sleep shorts, a staple in my sleepwear wardrobe. It's easy.
I'm thinking I will just use this pattern to make everyday shorts.... uhmm.

I am super picky about the books I read. Those that enthrall me must be very much out of the ordinary and have some reality to them as well as be heart touching.
I do want my daughters to be comfortable learning and testing limits as I did with this little blankie.
No, the book isn't about blankies. It's about what happens to 4 girls, daughters of a mother who dies of cancer but has much to say to them still. She does it in letters and a journal she kept for them from the time she became ill.
This blankie will go in the box of gifts I will give my daughters when they become mothers.

I wish I could say something eloquent about this crochet groove that I am in, but all that seems real is that it connects me to my mother who has been gone for almost two years.
Crochet was her master talent and I often watched her study crochet books and embark on learning new things. I don't see myself doing the elaborate works she did, but I make works of love for my daughters as she did for hers.
