I'm down to one project! I decided to scrap the poncho, and use the Paton's Divine yarn for the New York Jacket instead. I also want to do a felted hat (don't ask me why, since I don't wear hats), and Debbie was kind enough to let me borrow her pattern for a Cameron Diaz-like hat.

I'm furiously working on Charlotte #2 - almost done! Then I can start on Anouk and something for the other December baby. And I have to move. Oh yeah, and work occassionally. Work, schmurk...

Charlotte is finished! She looks pretty good. I blocked her, and was very happy with that. KPPPM smells pretty funny when it's wet, though...

Julie will laugh at this, because not only do I shop in twos, I knit in twos. Now that Charlotte #1 is done, I'm moving on to Charlotte #2. This time in Fleece Artists Country Silk yarn. One hank'll do ya! It's much easier than I thought it would be, and know that I have the pattern down, I'm flying through the second one.

Since I have a plan for everything, here's mine for knitting: finish Charlotte #2 by Thanksgiving, start Anouk (#2 of course!) and finish by Christmas. Finish up Spiky Poncho sometime soon, and start some type of baby item and finish by Christmas. I like ambitious deadlines. Oh yeah, and somewhere in there, I have to move. Trust me, I'd rather be knitting...

Man oh man am I tired. I haven't been sleeping well, and I went to the gym this morning, so I'm about ready for a nap! Unfortunately, I don't think my boss would appreciate that.

What's going on in knitting world? Charlotte is almost done! I have I think 13 more rows, then I need to do the edging and block that puppy. Charlotte #1 down!

I have a bunch of other projects with deadlines - Charlotte #2, Anouk, and something else for a baby. Don't people know that when they decide not to find out the sex of their child before it's born, it really messes up my knitting?!?!? :-) That's OK - I'll do something "gender-neutral."

Seeing as how I'm moving in 2 weeks (ack!) I have no idea how I'll get all this done. I'll figure something out I guess.

Is it naptime yet?!?!?!
