I'm not really sure where all the time and yarn have gone, but I have been spending an inordinate amount of time making tiny baby hats for eventual donation to local neonatal intensive care units, along with a small group of people at work. I've already received a donation for yarn for the cause, and used that to purchase something that is not "baby" yellow or pink:
The pattern is mindless and goes quickly. I even overcame my fear of pom-pom making, only to misplace the damn pom-pom maker (after using it for the first time in 15 years!!) in the disarray that is presently our upstairs painting project...
There are always socks - these are made with yarn that refused to be anything (and is even only questionably tolerating being these socks):
Last for today is a preview of something you'll be receiving shortly. I'll show a full picture later on.
I haven't caught your lace bug yet, but there are a couple of things glaring at me right now that could end up as lace projects - just as soon as I finish the last of the wedding afghans, and find that darn pom-pom maker!!!
