I've put the blanket for Otter/Baby Bear on hold, mostly because I tried doing the color-blocked section, hated the way it was turning out, and ended up frogging ten rows of blanket. Otter, you'll appreciate this - I'm using Grandma's needles for the blanket! Our grandma was notorious for getting almost all the way done with a project, realizing she had made a mistake somewhere earlier, then ripping out the whole thing and starting again. I didn't rip out the whole thing - I kept the first 100 rows, so it's not too bad. But I'm waiting until I have time to go to the yarn store and ask for advice on how to proceed.
In the meantime, I've actually finished two other projects. The first was a birthday present for a friend - Matt bought a sock monkey for Brie, and wanted her name embroidered into a tattoo on its arm (like those commercials where the toys went crazy - do you remember them?). I've been putting it off for months, but tonight, I finished it! It wasn't hard at all, and it didn't take long to do, but I just didn't get around to it. Now, though, it's off the list!
The other project I finished (at 10:30, which is after I wanted to be in bed, and has delayed this post) is a sweater-turned-pillow. I started this one YEARS ago after finding this awesome yarn. Unfortunately, I didn't get enough to actually finish the sweater I started, but I really liked the pattern. So I modified it, and voila! Years later, a knit/crochet pillow cover. I'm pretty happy with it. And there's just enough of the yarn left to make a simple scarf or something small. Maybe.
So that's what I've done while waiting impatiently for the weekend.
