So this week will be finishing off those things. I'll post pictures when the projects are completed.

I had plans to make the kids a scarf and hat anyway, since it was likely to snow here in New Mexico during our stay, and we were planning on a ski trip up to the mountains. Now, we will be living where it will be snowing for sure and we will have winter for 4 months AT LEAST, lol. :)
I made these hats yesterday. I like Anna-Elizabeth's. I am not liking Elijah's at all. I think I will end up ripping out the bottom row, then redoing the ear flaps and trim. Today I am working on the older boys with a different pattern :)

I started it a month or so ago using leftover caron simply soft from the throw I made for my mom for Mother's Day.
I will make up a quick hat and put it in the stash with the others going to the indian reservation.
I'm glad to have those two things done. They were kinda hanging around, looming (like I mentioned earlier) and now they are d.o.n.e. The rest of this week will be spent of finishing up the log cabin baby blanket I started last week. [Anna-Elizabeth borrowed my hook from that one and I haven't found it--granted I have more, but that was my favorite!]

Eh, it's done. In the beginning this was for Anna-Elizabeth. I picked out yarn or her scarf and hat and started. Well about two rows in I hated the yarn...it's not that it's bad but just for me...it's the colors, they are too COLORFUL .
So I finished it. I'll make a little hat and put it in the box with the others going to the Indian reservation.
This was made using a J hook.
Red Heart in some heinous varigated bright yarn (ha!)
and with this pattern (only I shortened the foundation chain by half and it is STILL an adult length)

I made my longer to do/project list over there on the left. But breaking that down further this week my goal is to finish the log cabin baby blanket, finish the two corkscrew scarves that are nearing completion and do two quick hats to match scarves I've already made for the indian reservation mission project. Finishing off these projects this week will allow me to get to what I feel is a 'clean slate' or more organized point to move on to the rest of the list. Right now these feel like loose ends (the scarves and needed hats).
Next, I'll move on to my kiddos scarves/hats/fingerless gloves and work on the babette. I need to finish it in August for sure.
The that leaves me with Sept/Oct to work exclusively on Christmas projects.

Granted there is no real talent to adding sprinkles to cupcakes...but hey it works. :)

Currently I have started this babette and another baby blanket. I am also working on scarves and hats for this Fall/Winter for my kiddos (we'll actually get to wear them, so I'm enjoying making them!) and I always, always, always have a dishcloth or two going.
I think the idea of staying with one project till the end is a good one. I'm not necessarily knocking it. But it would also be like telling me I had to wear my hair the same way everyday for a year, or that I had to wear white shoes after labor day (ha!) I just don't see it working for me. :)
