A weekend full of scraps
That's right. I am making a big effort to use up my stash so I tried using even the smallest of scraps to make these fun "hedgehoggy" type hats. I think they came out kind of cute. A little girl at school wore one this winter and it was great! So I worked up three of them...
Also pictured is my crocheted variegated and black granny square blanket that I work on while surfing the net. It is getting bigger. And hotter too. I don't know if I'll be able to work on it this summer. I was also working on a few other scrap type hats with just a little bit of yarn. There are two crocheted and one knit. All of the hats will go to the CIC project for May/June. They are working on items for the Cheyenne Project in South Dakota. I will now start working up some mittens to be sent with the hats.
I have not gone back to my shell. I should really get that finished to wear before the end of school. I won't really have an occasion to wear it outside of school this summer. Other than these projects I have finished reading Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. I am usually a big fan of her books, but this one was very depressing in the light of the VT shooting. Right now I am just finishing up a great book (if you like Amy Tan) of her memoirs... called The Opposite of Fate. It is well written and very funny.
