Can I do needlepoint which I enjoy on Rosh Chodesh?

Answer:

Ideally one should refrain from needlepoint on Rosh Chodesh. One may be lenient on the night of Rosh CHodesh and on the first day of a two day Rosh Chodesh. Some rely on lenient opinions that light work done for enjoyment are permissible on Rosh CHodesh.
