A fun request and other shenanigans

So last week I got an e-mail from a good friend wondering if I could make a hat for her baby girl as part of her halloween costume.  She is going to go as a viking.  I was super excited to finally have a reason to make this viking hat.  It’s been on my radar for quite some time now.  I love the way it came out and the braids are so fun too.

Annddd I finally finished the shell top i’ve been working on (well almost, just have to tie in the loose ends).  I like the way it came out but I think its a tad small for me, although I haven’t blocked it yet.  Maybe it’ll be a nice gift for a friend.  Pics aren’t awesome, sorry about that.  Gotta find my tripod or wait for the hubby next time.

Also I’ve still been trying out different homemade things, I’m loving it.  I made more bread (it’s sooo much better than store bought) and the past couple of weeks I’ve been trying homemade yogurt.  I’ve made plain and  vanilla so far.  I really can’t believe how easy it is. You guys should definitely try it.
