i just went on an online yarn shopping spree. the original idea was to buy some yarn for the poncho i am making trav's cousin, but i got a bit crazy. this is one of the yarns i bought: recycled rayon/cotton sari yarn. i have no idea what i'm going to use it for. but it's so pretty, i just wanted to see what it looked like in person. i'm sure i'll think of something to make with it!

i started the baby hat and i'm about half done. i used the pakucho cotton i had left over from the first baby hat i made. i'm worried that a plain off-white hat is kind of boring for mamas and baby, but there's something about the simplicity of this yarn that i like for baby clothes. anyway, i'm not into pastels for babies and i wouldn't know what other colors to use to match a baby's wardrobe. i hope little smudge likes it. i ended up ripping the cotton candy hat; i had only done like one line and it wasn't worth transferring it to other needles or a stitch holder.

I'm sure the off-white is going to be lovely! Thank you for not making Lil Smudge a blue hat.

Being pregnant has taught me more about how early sex stereotyping starts than I ever imagined.

I think off-white is perfect for a baby, then it will match everything! I don't care much for pastels either.

You got such pretty colorful new yarn!!
