Okay, just one hat. And it's tiny. I was playing around with crocheting in the round yesterday, and ended up making this tiny little beanie, modelled by a TY plush I have lying around.

I'm now working on a Liane-sized version in blue and pink, so let's see how that goes.

Food and yarn!

I made some delicious banana-chocolate bread the other day. From scratch! I've made banana bread from a mix before, just adding my own bananas, but this time I did it on my own. It turned out really well. Very moist and delicious. The chocolate chips made it.

I've been working a lot on knitting and crocheting lately. I've finally knitted a scarf! Well, almost. I haven't finished it yet, because casting/binding off scares me. I'm not sure I quite understand how it works, so I might wait until I can find someone to show me in person.

I've also figured out how to crochet in the round! It's much easier than I thought it would be, so I'm trying to make a scarf in this method for my roommate before I leave Bellingham (on Sunday! Ahh!). Maybe once I get this down, I can try making some cute little yarn amiguri!

Finally finished!

Since I graduated a few weeks ago, I've had a lot more time on my hands. I decided to put at least some of that time toward finishing the blanket I started back when I moved in, almost ten months ago; I mentioned it way back when, describing it as "a smaller blanket" than the one I made for my mom's birthday last year. Hah! This thing is huge.

It's roughly 33 inches by 114 inches, or two and a half feet by nine and a half. Ridiculous! A strange shape, definitely, but it will do nicely as a blanket for my bed. Or I can wrap it around myself indefinitely and be cozy that way.
