Swap box arrived from Ravelry Book Club swap. Chinese theme to go with the book, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. The yarn is reminicent of cherry blossoms and I'm already more than half way through the book.

Son has new hair. It was only gelled for this one day but he's happy with it. I think it's his way of having something unique now that the tail is gone.

Spring Forward socks are just ready to start the heel, I changed pattern to toe-up. Thought I might do one today but then remembered about pesky things like paying bills.

Baby blanket (Moderne Baby Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting) is coming along. I'm very happy with the join at the color change, both front and back look nice and neat. I need to finish these squares, I have another edge to do and then the border. I need to hurry up though since I know I have some time-bound projects coming up for Knitting Olympics and Traveling Scarf project at local yarn shop.

Oh, the hair. Glad mine kept his tail, though. Curly mohawks look funny.

Very nice socks, too.
