I finished the PingPong hat. It's not as deep as I'd like, but I used every last bit of the yarn. All that are left are the trimmings from tieing the tassles on, maybe 6 inches total. The yarn was nice to knit with, soft and squishy, but would be a nightmare for seaming, so I'm glad I did a hat in the round!

I REALLY liked the look of these little Ugg Booties everyone seems to be making. I'm trying to knit for a whole lot of babies right now, so I was considering making these, and I called the yarn store in town that carries Berrocco yarns. A mere $16.49 a ball for the Suede yarn. The pattern calls for 2 balls of the yarn PLUS a little of another kind for the trim. Those would be some DAMN pricey booties, I think I'll pass.

The star blanket is getting slower, the rows are longer and longer as the blanket gets bigger. It's also less fun to work on as I can't watch TV or read blogs while I crochet, I have to watch my hands. I'm going to try and do a round every day though, I'd really like to see the end result sometime soon!

I started a hat in PingPong yarn in Pink by Bernat. It looks and feels really neat, but doesn't seem that practical for a sweater. I didn't notice the yardage was so short, I don't know if I will have enough for the hat. I'll just keep knitting and see if I have enough, it goes fast so if I have to rip it out that's not a huge deal. I might use some Satin yarn I have in bright pink along with it if needed. I don't know if stripes or colour blocks would look better though........

Still working on the blanket. It's coming along really nicely, I can't wait to finish and see how it looks done.

I'm working on a little crochetes mouse right now, from a pattern here: It's a lot smaller than I expected, but it will be really cute, I think.

The star baby blanket is coming along nicely. I'm really enjoying crochet! I do find it requires more attention than knitting, I have to watch my hands while I do it, but that's ok. Here's the blanket so far:
