Sew, knit & Crochet!!

That's right folks! These days I am doing it all!!

First off is a gift I have yet to stick in the mail: a toddler sized, LSU themed fair isle baby hat. This is my first attempt at fair isle knitting and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I really need to go ahead and put this in the mail!!
Ta-Da! Here's it is:

Next up is a retro pattern apron that I sewed. This is my first 'real' sewing project. By 'real' I mean: not a big rectangle curtain, from a pattern, and something I will actually allow to be seen in public because it doesn't look like a 10-yr old went nuts on a sewing machine. This is for a piratey-themed swap that I'm in so hopefully the lucky recipient will like it!

Last is a work-in-progress. This is an LSU theme/colored wavy baby blanket that I am crocheting. Everyone in my family is still insisting on popping out little babies like it's going out of style, so I think like last year, I will have a steady stream of baby gifts in my project list.
OK, that about catches everyone up. I have one more finished project, but no pictures to share. It is my cavern cardi, which 'hibernated' for many months before I finally finished up the sleeves. I think it came out great for a first sweater and I've already worn it a couple of times.
