I'm Back!

I didn't actually go anywhere, but I've been a little absent with this blog.  Truthfully, I was on "vacation" last week.  I use the parentheses because it wasn't a true vacation.  I didn't go anywhere, I still went into work a few times, was on call 24/7, and worked my little butt off around the house.  So, it wasn't really a vacation, just some much needed time off of work.  Now don't get me wrong, I love my day job.  Research is in my blood.  But I've been working on so many projects that I needed a break.  Unfortunately the projects didn't go away while I was gone, but I guess that's a good thing.  As long as there are projects, hopefully there is money to go with those projects, and if there is money, I still have a job.  :-)

But anyway, back to important things; creative stuff.  I haven't picked up a bead since my last show.  I just haven't had time to plan a new project out, but I'm hoping to be able to do that soon.

I have been working on my crochet projects.  I'm pretty proud of myself with these.  They aren't anything special, but it's still better then what I was doing only a few short months ago.

I've been busy with dish cloths.  I've even started making these little guys called Twashi.  Aren't they cute?  I got the pattern here and I love making them.  They only take an hour or so to make one, so they have a sort of instant gratification.

I've also made a few more square dish cloths, but to be honest, I like using the twashi better.  They work really well.

I've also come to a stand still with my blanket.  I've now gone through 9 balls of yarn and I think I need at least one or two more.  So as soon as I pick some more of that up, I can hopefully finish that guy up.

And the project that I was most proud of, my hat.

Look at it, I made a hat.  I followed a pattern and made a hat.  I can't believe it.  It's nothing fancy, but it is a hat.  And the most important thing is, I was able to follow a pattern.  I was so scared that I wouldn't be able to, but I did.

I didn't make the flowers, those I already had, but the actual hat was all me.  I can't wait to make some more.  Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas this year?

What have all of you been up to?  Start or finish any fun projects?

The hat is great! Wish I could crochet. I used to do knitting and crochet decades ago but found it tedious. You are doing great with it.
