charity projects

got one hat done for susan b for the local homeless or troops project.

also got an order, 2 orders actually, and i have to still crochet a baby blue afghan for a boy-took all the leftover blue yarns (baby and sport weight) and will work a few rows of each color-it's coming out really good. also have to make a shawl in blue/white variegated. have rosary and pouch and the angel dishcloths done allready.

headed to walden pond in concord, ma, it's a 3 mile hike around the lake, gorgeous day for it. on the ride up i did knit some hats for hospital.

got an order for a few items via my ad in blind magazine.
