I think it's time to unsubscribe from the Berreco newsletter.... this arrived in my mailbox today, and the only thing that comes to my mind is "It's burning my retinas!"
presenting... the finished baby hat! It's very soft, because the white is chenille... and I think it's going to be a big hit
anyway- here are the project specs
yarn- white was an unknown chenille from my mom; red was leftovers from a sweater
pattern- modified from a child's hat pattern from a magazine
time- It sat as an UFO for a while, but once I started working on it again, maybe 2 weeks?

I feel much better now
I miss knitting
I've just been so busy- I have tons of reading and and getting a little burnt out. So tonight I'm going to take at least a 1/2 hour and work on the little baby hat I've been working on a while.
:) I'm sure I'll feel better, and maybe the black shrug won't be glaring at me from it's place on the couch. It hates me. really.

Sleeping Beauty Awakes!
anyway... one funny moment was seeing a few ballerinas with forbidden spindles, and they began knitting with them. heh. I was amused, and even more so when I realized I might be one of only a very, very, very few in the building who actually knows how to use a spindle.

Jurisprudence (the 8:30 am one)
Legal Aid clinic
see that last one? The clinic is time consuming. So I've decided not to try out for Mock Trial. I'll miss it, but I need the extra hours, because I really haven't been knitting enough.
actually, last night I worked a bit on my older sister's shrug. It's coming along, but slowly.
In other knitting news, I have 2 socks that need to be finished and sent off to the marvelous M (who needs to email me her address)
I also need to finish some flowers for my mom's Xmas purse, and a baby hat that some guild members saw on Sunday.
Sorry for all those people going to Sufficient Grounds tonight, but a friend of mine is leaving town, and tonight is her going-away dinner.

* I bought a helmet
Also, I visited a yarn/quilting store on Main Street, and it was nice- a smaller selection than our South Bend LYS's, but I'm sure rent here is much more expensive. The great thing is that the owner has a limited selection of standard yarns, and a ton of hand-dyed wool and mohair, in just beautiful colors. Sadly, there is no laceweight.
In knitting news, I'm almost done with M's Christmas present, and I have the Flowerbasket pattern. Yeehaw, lace, here I come!
