This is the yarn for the Spring Forward Cardigan - which I will start within the next two weeks. I like to have a few bigger projects going at the same time - so I can change off. I'm still trying to finish two other projects before I jump into this, my mermaid and the MSA3. As far as little projects - I always have a pair of socks, one baby sweater, and at least one dishcloth OTN. These are great projects to bring with me whenever I leave the house as I hate to be bored. And, no, I don't drive and knit at the sametime:)
I just love this color, and will end up being the Mystery Shawl Along 3. This is another that I want to get started within the next couple of weeks - as this will be for my Mom. I know I won't get it done by the time I leave for NY - but will bring it with me. My Mom likes to have something over her shoulders and thought this would be perfect.
This little stash is to make Chemo Caps for my Mom. She just started radiation and chemo last week, so I want to get started on some caps - and thought she'd like the bright colors. Someone from one of the yahoogroups I'm on mentioned that she uses Microspun for the chemo caps she knits as they are very soft. I'll give it a try. I have a few different patterns in mind - and I'm hoping to have them finished by the time I go out to New York in mid-May.
This is my first Clappy - I used a hand painted merino superwash which I bought at a LYS - so I can't remember the specifics. Anyway, since this clappy, I knitted 3 others and have the last OTN. I enjoy making them - but after I finish this next one I will need a break for awhile. I really want to make four more - one for each of my sisters. I'll start those in Aug. The others I made were for two of my daughters and my Mom. The Clappy OTN is for my youngest daughter.
Here is my Knitting Olympics projects - baby afghan, Yvette's garter stitch baby sweater (based on Beribboned Eyelet Design), and a baby booty. Yes, there's only one there at the moment. Somehow I misplaced one little, tiny booty. If I can't find it - thankfully I have more yarn - so I'll make another. I best hurry and get this sent out before the baby weighs 20 lbs:)

Until I figure out how to place the "ticker" somewhere at the top of my blog - I'll just keep updating here.

As far as my knitting, I almost have my Triangular Shawl done - and will continue work on the chocolate brown baby blanket. I have some smaller projects to finish up then will start a couple of other big projects. One is the FLAK (I do have the swatches done), the Spring Forward Cardigan, and the Irish Hiking Scarf. I will be busy:)
OOPS, forgot the pictures post from the bottom up. Still learning - but at least they're here. I'll take more pictures of my finished projects in a few days. My goal is to keep up with my blog and not let a month pass before posting again. Not even sure where March went:)
