What you are working on at this moment and how its going!
I know that info is scattered across a few threads, but its been pretty quiet around here and I thought it might be neat to get an update on recent projects.
Include a picture if you have one!
Longies for ds.. I'm almost done.. just need to sit and finish the cuffs.
I've got the waistband started for a soaker for the new baby.
And I just got the pattern for Elizabeth's dishcloth.. I need to go buy cotton thread to try it out

I have been working on this queen sized rippled purple and grey blanket for my bed for he past year. I am about half finished and CANT WAIT to be done. There were a few months I diddnt even pick it up though. Ive been so busy, I just wish I had more time to crochet. I also have many misc. little projects going on at any given time too. I will try to take a pic later and post it.
Im excited to see what everyone else is working on!
I finished the dishcloth for dishrag tag.
I know i said I'd send it out Saturday, but it was getting late and the kids were nappnig, i didnt' want to wake them up and I thought "I can do it first thing Monday" but then I realized that today is a holiday! Argh! Anyway, it will be going out tomorrow!
So I'm returning to my daisy stitch handwarmers...the pattern I posted about in the "I love this pattern!" thread.
I have a pic of my progress so far, here it is:
FRustrations and being upset causies me to knit like a furry, so now i started a kind of baby overall in mint green with little lemons cherries and strawberries on them ( a german mag my mom sent me) for my nieces little baby girl.
Longies, longies, longies. Oh, and a take home outfit for the baby to arrive in the spring. It's on size 0/1 needles, so it will take a while!
Things I've done in the last month
Oh they are all awesome! But that first pair is spectacular! How cute will those ruffles look! What does the going home outfit pattern look like? (I know, I'm nosey)
They had a beautiful white bunting of sorts, that even had a slot for car seats in one of their booklets. But I never could convince myself that i could complete it before my kids grew out of it.
You'll have to show us when its done...or maybe when you take the little one hom in it
I am making my first wool skirty, but I do loom knitting and can't find a pattern so I am just winging it at this point. I need to take progress pics.
