It feels like so long since I've been able to blog, but I haven't been entirely absent from the craft world. This time of year is very hectic for me, but nonetheless I am always happy to find even just a smidgen of time for crafting.
During the Christmas holidays, an 8 year old girl at church asked me to make her a pink scarf. (Yes, I bring my crochet bag to church. No I don't crochet during services, but sometimes when we go to church out of town, the people I ride with may have meetings so while I wait, I craft. And while I'm riding, I craft.) Anyhoo, it was too close to Christmas for me to honor her request and I didn't want to start something between other little ones who wouldn't be receiving anything, so I decided to make this gift set for her birthday instead. That will also buy me a little time to make something for the ones with spring birthdays. So, the January birthday girl will get all the pink she wants in this hat and scarf set. I think she'll like it. I remember loving pink just as much when I was her age. :-) Before you ask, yes, I used my yarn stash. Be proud.
I also finished a very cool scarf last night, but it's being blocked and hasn't dried yet. As soon as it does, I will be sure to post pics!
