I've actually been doing quite a bit of crocheting while nursing Mike. In the hospital, I finished a beanie for Mike to wear on the bus (in uniform blue) so he liked that. It is the Anarchy Irony Hat from SnB Happy Hooker book.
Next, I crafted Tara's Christmas present during the first 10 days at the hospital ... she actually asked for a handmade deep purple blanket so how could I refuse? It turned out lovely, made with chenille edges/border and Vanna's Soft Yarn double-stranded in the star-stitch body. This one got lots of compliments in the hospital and I was prepared to give it to our favorite nurse if Tara didn't absolutely love it. Sorry Bruce, but it was a hit on Christmas.
Then, I ran into a crafting "wall" for a week or so, until I decided to start something from my WIM/queue, the Boteh Scarf from Interweave Crochet Spring 2007. I used some sock yarn in my stash that I didn't make into my first pair of socks as intended; but this turned out so much better than my original idea anyway! I've already started a second Boteh for a late Christmas gift.
Since I am on a roll, last night I also felted my Beads, Welts and Popcorns Bag that I used some special Karaoke yarn to create. It is currently being blocked dry, then I'll add the handles and snap a final picture.
