Black Bean Soup and Bright Yellow Happiness

There's lots happening out our way lately, never a dull moment you know.
I've been knitting a little more lately and I'm happy to report that I've recently gotten a long-hibernating project finished! I started a very wide, bright yellow baby blanket as a bus project a few years ago. It got packed away when life got too busy, and then forgotten, and then found again as we were packing for our move. I've finished it, and I'm quite proud of it!

I've also started and finished the first hat in a series intended to be gifts to our local soup kitchen for Christmas. Because they will be given to the soup kitchen, and because I organize and chronicle all my projects on Ravelry, I've decided to name all the hats after soup! Corny? Maybe, but I like to have fun when I can. Here is "Black Bean Soup"

Now all I need to do is wash the blanket, and block it and it can be given to our community's newest expectant mother!

What have you been doing to stay busy?
