One of my dear friends had a baby about a month before Christmas. I wasn't able to make it to her baby shower, but we were able to visit shortly after New Years. I knit a little hat for the baby girl, but I didn't want to choose a yarn that screamed BABY or was all pink. I found a soft rainbow acrylic that made large stripes when knit into such a small hat. She just turned 3 months old, and the weather is finally cold enough to wear the hat. My friend sent this picture to my phone this week and it made my day! ADORABLE! (And the hat is pretty nice too...)

Since the new year, my schedule has shifted so that I work on Saturdays but get to take Monday off. Every Monday I settle into a nice comfy chair and pick a project to work on. This week my Monday project was making bracelets. Last week I ordered some strands of gemstone beads from Fire Mountain Gems. They were having a $1 Sale and I like getting some variety in the materials I buy. Today I had the chance to take the beads off the strands and put them away in my bead containers so they can be used.

project as part of a crochet-a-long. I'm getting started on the crochet-a-long a little late, but I am making great progress on the blanket.
