Last night I made a sweater in one hour. Okay, it was Barbie-sized, but it still sounds like an accomplishment. The sweater is for the Red Sweaters project and will be part of a public art display. If you knit or crochet and haven't heard of this yet I suggest you check out the site and consider submitting. The final project will have one red sweater for every American soldier killed in the Iraq war. Each sweater must be knit from the same type of yarn for consistency- the irony is that the artist chose red acrylic yarn, a petroleum product, to represent the blood shed.
I also recently finished the sushi toilet paper cozy from the first issue of crochet me. This pattern is actually uses crochet, knitting, and embroidery so it is pretty fun.
And finally, here is my hat with a giant heart. I can't explain it, I just wanted something really big on the side of a hat and I chose a heart out of laziness. I still think it's pretty cool.
