Idle Hands

Babies = handicrafts.

I`ve dabbled in knitting in my past, but never came past the basic straight scarf.  When Marielle came along my fingers suddenly itched to create something. I yearned to step confidently into the yarn store at the mall and join the other ladies in the scrutinizing, squeezing and caressing of the skeins of yarn. I suppose it`s instinctual, a part of the nurturing. Woman makes baby, baby needs blanket, mom makes blanket, or hat, scarf, booties etc. 

I´ve finished a couple knitting projects and am now teaching myself to crochet. I`ll get around to posting the others, but here`s my first finished crochet project - a hat. It was a gift for a baby girl.
