We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

I've made a teenie preemie hat, the thing is TINY. It takes me a while because I'm using a standard-size pattern on small needles with small yarn, instead of making a smaller pattern. I did a blue one and I'm going to make a pink one. I just have to charge my camera batteries and then I'll take pictures.

On the needles: Falling Leaves Socks, Punkin Hats, Artful Afgan and another waterlily for a friend of mine (on hold until I feel like working with that yarn again)

In the queue:
Jack Skellington baby afghan
Finished: Warm Up America Square, Basketweave Baby Blanket (now to ship it), Massachusetts Dishcloth for the Yarn Harlot, Homeless Hat
, water bottle cozy

Wow! I'm glad this thread has been brought back up!

I made a few more preemie hats that took hardly no time at all.

I'll take and post pictures later.
