crochet's interruption

i was finished with the 2nd front part of my lavender cardigan project, only leave the sleeve. however since i just exactmeaning from the let's knit series pattern, i think i better frog the back part..sigh..
with this frog things.. make me a bit lazy ... but my hands and my minds still want to do something with the hooks and needles.
i was emailed to siow chin few weeks ago about the stashbuster, even i haven't join with the group yet, i would like to reduce my stash.
looking at my stash i am still wondering what i am going with these self-dyed nylon (as an experiment, i made lots of these, about 30 skeins ..hik...hik...) there are blue, pink, peach, gold, olive green and marron. not mention the white (non-dyed).
so, i digged out my collection of granny square pattern (free from
pricilia hewitt) and then i picked the peach and thinking about the sofa pillow cover... i may need to mixed with other color, like blue or here it is

originally it was a coasterm, but with these size for just 1 piece, i only need about 8 for 1 sofa pillow cover...:p

then, few days ago, my cousin was gave birth, c-section. it was an emergency thing, since she got poisonnous from one of wedding banquet. got very bad diarhea like 4 days, and she was 7 months pregnant!!
so the doctor doesnt want to take any more risk, after few days in patient, finally the doctor ask her to do the c-section.
the baby is boy (now they have 3 boys!!!) and very tiny, only 2.9 kilograms. they put the baby now in NICU (ICU for baby..sigh).
with 2 months faster than expected, i got to hurry up with the baby afghan i want to give her as present. and i got this pattern as my inspiration , because i mixed with the pattern from marrymaxim (illusion crochet afghan)

Don't worry, he'll be fine! I had 2 nephews who were born premature too. One of them weighed only 2.8 kg! But now they're all big and healthy ;)
