Trundling ever onward.

Scarfward ho! It's been more of the same around here, lately--scarf, scarf, scarf. That's why I've been kind of quiet. A HORRIBLE cold didn't help matters either. Here's the update:

Finished: Baby Love Baby Blanket. Except I turned it into a cute little seamless raglan cardigan when it became completely obvious that the blanket wouldn’t be complete anywhere NEAR on-time. It turned out wonderfully—A white cardi with a red stripe above the ribbing on the body and sleeves, and another red stripe around the raglans. Cute red buttons finished it off, and it’s just as sweet as can be. Delivered to the mom-to-be prior to baby's arrival, so it all worked out.

On the Needles:
Party-Time Apron: No change.
Devan: No change.
Sock: No change.
Lite Brite: No change.

In sad news, the preceding four projects have actually migrated back upstairs to the craft nook, where they are unable to glare at me and make me feel guilty while I work on:

Rubby’s Sekrit Scarf: Fifteen stripes out of nineteen. I’ll say no more, as it’s Sekrit.

Shelly’s School Spirit Scarf: Thirteen stripes out of nineteen.

Yet another Sekrit Project: The yarn? Kelly Green Butterfly Super 10 cotton. It’s cast-on, and about an inch long—I’m hitting gauge perfectly on size 3 needles—and gauge is important, since this project has three different knitters working on it.

In the hoop: (Don't even ask. I haven't touched my embroidery)
Merry Cox Sailor's Huswif: No change.
Joe and Sally Snow: No change.
Wedding Snowflake Hardanger: No change.
Floral afghan: No change.

Reading: Completely slacking on the reading front. I just can’t bring myself to start anything, so I’ve been doing crossword puzzles and reading Entertainment Weekly in bed at night instead.
