'Tis the season

I know, I's been almost two months since my last posting.  After I last posted I started a job and I found it hard to find the time to update.  I did, however, slowly finish the project that I began with the pink yarn.  I made a lovely prayer shawl that was intended to be a give-away here but I came across someone in need of it and gave it to her.  I didn't get a picture of it but I have started another one in the same color and when that one is finished, I will take a picture and post it here.  I thought about doing it in holiday colors but I just love the pink yarn and another donation was made to the Susan G. Komen foundation. 

There's just something comforting about making prayer shawls.  I have made a few over the years without having anybody in mind.  But it's nice to have them to give.  The same goes for newborn hats.  I just feel so peaceful when I'm making them because I know they will be going on a newborn's little head at the hospital, whether in the NICU or regular nursery.  Making those just takes my mind off of everyday issues for a little while, I can just "zone" out for a while.

So on that note, I am currently working on hats for the grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  I just might throw some in for my children, too.  We shall see. 

Until next time, keep on hooking.
