I have a hungry squirmy baby in my lap... this will be a quick post.

First off, here are our November swap squares. Sorry I'm so late getting them posted.

The pattern was the Victorian Dream square which you can find here.

Here is my contribution:

And my sister's:

One of my first post-Christmas projects will be to assemble mine, so stay tuned for photos of the completed blankets.

I didn't get much (well any, really) crochet done this week until yesterday. I have been pretty sucked into my video game (Knights of the Old Republic--I'm a level and a half away from completing it, fingers crossed) in most of my free time. But I did get a few quick stocking stuffers done yesterday and today.

First up, for my baby girl, I made this hat:

Those sci-fi fans out there might notice that this bears a slight resemblance to the Jayne Hat, and it was an inspiration, to be sure, also I had this yarn lying around leftover from the Amigurumi giraffe I made earlier in the year. Once I figure out knitting next year I will be making my very own Jayne Hat, for anyone who's wondering.

The other project I got done was this one, for my hubby:

Just a quick little beanie. I am kind of proud of the checker-board pattern I got going in the middle. I hope he enjoys it.

I also started on my cable-socks more in earnest this evening and am hoping to have them done for my own stocking stuffer by Thursday, but we'll see. :o)

Other than that, there's the Yoshi blanket, which I need to just find a groove on, I think.

So that's it for me this week. Off to tend to the baby. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

I'm trying to contact you regarding your crocheted Hobbes. My daughter would love to make one and I have no idea even where to start. Did you crochet the body in just one piece? How does one do that? I only know basic crochet. Did you write down your stitches so you have a pattern of sorts? If you have a chance, could you email me any suggestions to pass on? Many hugs to you and your little girl,
