Well I've had a busy weekend of crocheting while watching TV, haha. I have 3 hats and 3 more squares ready to go to knit-a-square. My room looks like a yarn explosion at the moment, so the good news is I'm working through my huge stash, and the items will be going to needy kids. It's a win-win.
katara, the sock monkeys look great so far. I don't think I'd have the patience for that material, especially hand sewing, hehe.
