I used to be a better blogger

I was looking over some old posts, trying to clean things up (just for you, Mom! ha, ha!) and gosh, I used to be a lot better at keeping track of my projects here. I think Ravelry has really snarfed up all that time and energy.

So in the interest of keeping this a knit/crochet blog, here's a picture of yarn!
that will (hopefully) soon become a cute hat. I've agreed to test-knit a pattern for a Rav person. I let Nick pick the yarn; I was gonna go with Paton's Classic Merino, but he picked this swankier Amherst Valley. The kid has expensive tastes. Good thing I got it as a freebie!

Anyways, I think I'd better use this space for to keep better track of my knitting/crochet. Rav lets me keep track of my WIPs and FOs, but not my nebulous future plans. So here's some of the things I've got yarn for but haven't started:

Chunky hat from some homespun I got in a trade
Crochet squares for a blanket for a Rav friend
Crocheted sweater for Afghans for Afghans
Another BYOB, in an orange color
Amigurumi animals/creatures for Dennis and the kids
Tunisian crochet scarf from some pricey bamboo
Honest to god sweater, once again repurposing my Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece
Baby blanket for Mindy's future kid (due... October? maybe?)
Ornaments from crochet thread

ugh, I'm going to stop there. The list is so long I'm getting anxious! I will concentrate instead on stuff I've actually started, if I can get a couple of things done I'll feel better:

Nick's blanket
Purple/green socks
Barney in a blender socks
Yosemite sweater

so many. must buckle down.
