My stiff, swollen fingers and tingly hands completed a very basic project: a blankie for Stella. My true intention is to protect furniture from her hairball eruptions and general shedding. But oh, how she loves this! I put it on the chair last night and she kneaded it for half an hour. I’m content to have made it, and she’s content to have it. Stella is the perfection of contentment. Now I need to figure out what to do with myself until the baby comes. Don’t want to overdo the wrist stress.
