Happy Valentine's Day!

This cute Matryoshka doll was part of my Valentine's Day gift to my mom :). She absolutely went crazy for her!! Maybe I need to make the rest of her "sisters" :-D! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Fish to sushi! Does this mean it is vegan? (it is acrylic yarn...) :)

Super Bowl Sunday!

First, woohoo GIANTS!!!! Way to play that game!

During the game I knit a scarf :), yep, an entire scarf!  Maybe it's good luck if I knit during the game ;).  This scarf is for my friend Lindsey who is in Japan for a year.  I made it to go along with the "Really Warm Hat" that I posted about here.  She really likes green and hot pink, so in the scarf there is green and hot pink along with some yellow and a cream.  I think it coordinates nicely :).

I also finished the pink ruffles baby blanket for my friend.  I'm totally happy with how it turned out.  Gives me some ideas for blankets I want to make and sell in my Etsy store (once I have more free time...aka when I have my PhD ;)).

Lastly, I reknit the Make-a-Statement hat for my mom.  As I thought the first one was too small for her head. Soooooo, I made this one this week during my commute :).  She LOVES it!

That's all for now! I hope to finish some more stuff as this week goes on.  I also submitted another grant proposal for my dissertation and I'll hear back tomorrow about whether or not I got accepted to another conference!  Fingers crossed for the grant especially!!!
