As an advanced beginner with the ol' hooks and yarn, I think I am in quite a good place to review some of the crochet projects I have found online. Sometimes I will.click through to an 'easy' pattern on Ravelry or Pinterest (you can find my Easter crochet board here) and go cross-eyed, either from the amount of complicated stitch changes, or from the lack of detail to really help the novice crocheter.

I know I said I was probably not going to write much about being a mum, but today I am making an exception. It is 5:50 am. Minibot has been sleeping on my arm now for 30 minutes. We are curled up on a rocking chair together while I help her to sleep. Today is one of the earlier starts, but every day she wakes up too early and screams because she can't get herself back to sleep.
And, no, before you ask, she has never slept through the night. No, we don't need to feed her. Yes, it probably would be easier to let her sleep in our bed/put in ear plugs and let her cry/emigrate to a different continent.....but that's not for us. Oh....It worked for you? Well that is JUST super! (insert appropriate hand gesture here)
