I will post photos tomorrow, but I figured I'd post SOMETHING....
Finally started my purple lace shawl, still working on the free form, the orange & white slipstitch pattern (this is my "easy" one), the lavendar lace (maybe 1/3 complete), and last Friday I started and finished the Yo Drop It scarf from SnB Nation in Red & White Pineapple yarn and red acrylic. It's about 5'6" long, took approximately 6 hours and is going in my gift pile for Christmas...

Still to plan... varigated green chenille scarf, lavendar cotton, gotta pick up some dpns for sock making, waiting for 3 pounds of yarn from ebay...

And I'm EXHAUSTED from work today - lately I've only been busy for about half the day, and all of a sudden my brain is working full speed on laying out unit plans!!!!!!!!

Projects for other people's babies

I've come across a couple of the CUTEST patterns for baby things veggie rattles and baby socks. I've got a cousin coming in February, so that gives me plenty of time...

I'm currently working on a Freeform scarf in blue/purple/pink/green/ivory (gee, I really need to post progress pics) , Knitty's Branching Out scarf in lavendar cotton/linen, and a fall scarf for my husband in orange cotton and white acrylic in a great slip-stitch pattern from my stitch bible , The Reader's Digest Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches.

I'm making progress toward my Holiday gifts ... the freeform is due at the beginning of September (she's leaving the country) and Branching out is a holiday gift, a few more scarves, some socks - I should be in good shape.

I still have 10 balls of Rowan Glace in Excite that I can't make up my mind on - I think I'll do a shawl for myself, but it's a matter of finding the right pattern....

I should really get back to work instead of daydreaming about my knitting projects!
