More, More, More...
A Song of Ice and Fire Reading Challenge (aka Game of Thrones) -- see also my sidebar for the link. The first step here is to find my books. We moved six months ago, how time flies!
A friendly granny square swap now on its second square, over at Debi's blog, Dly's Hooks and Yarns.
A Round Ripple Crochet-A-Long with Pammy Sue. She has a Flickr group to post pictures, progress, tips, and hints (I also have a link in my sidebar). There is an option of a pattern from Crochet World, December 2011 issue; or a free similar pattern (link listed in the discussion thread on Flickr). If you don't know Pammy Sue, you must read her stuff; she will crack you up. Her blog is Scotty's Place.
Then there is Share-a-Square. The last deadline is coming up. I want to send 50 squares come February 1st. I have 15 made; anyway groups of 10 if I don't make it to 50.
When do WIPs (works in progress) become UOs (unfinished objects)? I have a blanket for my husband (not blogged about previously). There's my sister's Christmas present from 2 Christmases and my first post ago. And that Christmas garland which should be properly called Winter Garland (which we don't seem to be having anyway). If I sit here long enough I am sure to come up with more things.
Oh, I know... I have a great nephew who will be born in probably April and I want to make an afghan for him. Perhaps that Round Ripple if I can find the right colors and right yarn out of my stash.
Anyway, I need a plan if I'm going to accomplish all this. First and second are Share-a-Square and Debi's swap while going through my stash for the Round Ripple. Maybe then the Winter Garland which just needs the hanging string or whatever you call it; I think I will style mine after Lucy's Jolly Festive Bunting. And, and, and...
Gotta find those books!
Have a good rest of the day...
P.S. Oh, and I need to show you the Christmas presents I made and give last month.
P.P.S. I don't remember where I got the photo from, but it sure seems to fit me today!
