A month ago, my sister in law requested a nursing hat for her wee baby. She sent me the link for a crocheted hat. I don't really crochet. I can, but it takes me a bit of time. I procrastinated and even tried to commission a friend to make it. Finally I settled in with my hook and whipped it up in about an hour. Not sure why I hemmed and hawed about making it. I am hoping it fits, since my hands have not held a small baby in quite some time. It is hard to remember how tiny they are.
Her bigger gift is not quite done. The main piece is complete, but I am only halfway done with the border. In lieu of cuddles, I am furiously trying to finish this gift for her. I have just a bit more to knit, so it should be done by the end of the week. I may even make a quick pair of Saartje's booties to go with it. I think the colors will looks really nice together. I will photograph it in color when it is complete and mailed. I tried to disguise it a bit in this photo. I would hate to ruin the surprise.
I started Sheepish: Two Women, Fifty Sheep, and Enough Wool to Save the Planet after reading a couple recommendations for it from others in Ginny's Yarn Along. I am quite enjoying it. I am about halfway through it. It does read quite quickly. I am not sure what will be next. I have a few books on hold, but I really need to delve back into Distant Hours. I have not picked it up since we arrived in D.C.
What about you? Any gift knitting or crocheting in your work basket?
