So Many Projects, So Little Time

If I could pick one super power, it would be to freeze time so that I can catch up on all my projects!  I haven't been blogging lately because I have been busy knitting and crocheting!  I have so many projects on my needles and hooks! I finished my granny square scarf that I mentioned in my last blog entry.  I am really happy with how it came out.  The colors matched my skirt beautifully and the black SC border gives it a sort of stained glass look, which I really like.
Granny Square Scarf, made with Vanna's Choice yarn.

Granny squares can be quite addicting.   I find that I have so much fun coming up with different color patterns that I can get a little carried away.  I also have an abundance of scrap yarns left over from past projects, so I decided to start this One piece Granny Square Blanket.

One Piece Granny Square Blanket.  I am still working on it, about 1/3 of the way done.  Made with some left over Red Heart and Caron one pound Yarn.

Then after I started my Blanket, I decided to put it aside for a minute and start a pair of Cable knit fingerless gloves for an upcoming class I am giving.

After I started my gloves, I learned that I was going to get to meet our friends new baby at the end of this month, so I thought I should set aside this project and get to work on a gift.  I decided to design an infant sized owl hat for her little one.  I can't wait to get to the eyes!
this is the beginning of an infant sized owl hat I am making for my friends new baby.  I am using Knit Picks shine worsted and simply cotton for it.  the body is going to be knitted and the eyes, beak, and ears will be crocheted.  I am also incorporating Vanna's Glamour for a little sparkle.  I am using stranded knitting for a multi-color motif.

I now have these three WIPs, on top of the sweater that started a few blog posts ago.  Then I thought fruit cozies would make a great gift for my daughters teachers...  I may have a problem, I can't seem to stop starting new projects!  The good news is, I have plenty to do!  But now I need to finish some of them, beginning with the owl hat, since that has the earliest deadline :)
