All of that said, it doesn't mean there hasn't been some strides made here. Just the other night I cast off the second Baby Heart Blanket.
As you recall, I have silly rules about considering a project "done" so even though this for all intense purposes looks complete it has not been blocked and therefore I cannot count it as done. That reminds me... MIL- can I borrow your blocking board at the Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday? Like the last one, this blanket turned out lovely. I still have likely TWO more acrylic blankets worth of yarn out of those enormous balls but I've decided to shelve it for a while and maybe after Christmas whittle the rest away. I can't decide if I'll continue using this pattern and try different iterations on it or if I'll go in a compeltely different direction. SO MANY CHOICES!
I've also been working on the hats and have 1.5 since the last time I updated you on those. I would really like to have 12 hats before the end of the year so that is going to be one of my goals- 6.5 left to go!
AND, a recent "grown ups only" trip back to Saskatchewan meant that I got to pull the travel sock out and knit a few rows on it. And, it looks like a leg is being born!
Sadly I haven't touched the mittens since the last blog post (!!) so I need to spend some time and dive back into that project. Christmas approaches and suddenly I'm feeling the slightest twinge of nerves about having enough time to complete 4 pairs of mittens... one more on the completed pile would make me feel a lot better.
And that's where I'm at so far this month. Halloween costumes have already begun to distract and I need to plan a birthday party for my soon-to-be FIVE year old (!!!!!!). Hoping in and amongst all that chaos I can still get a few more things off the needles and in the finished pile.
