I have so many projects going. I don't know why I keep doing it, but I keep starting another knit or crochet project before I finish the one I was previously working on. I feel so scatter brained. It's like I have so many ideas in my head I want to start them all before I forget. I'm just going to have to make myself focus on one task until it's done, it's just so hard though, maybe I can blame it on spring fever.

Hairpin Lace is something I've been wanting to try for quit a while, but just never really got around to it. Now with all the lacy type tops out there, I figured now was a good time to give it a go. I had a thinner type yarn in my stash I thought would work pretty good. I couldn't find any patterns I really liked, just directions on how to make the panels and then connect them once they were done. You-tube is a great source for ideas and directions.

The walls still need painted, but not this time of year. It's a small room with slanted ceilings so tall shelves really aren't an option. I came up with an idea to put a big dowel across the slanted side of the room and put shoe holders on the dowel for the yarn. I think that is going to work pretty good. Now that it's semi organized I can see many projects I want to start on.

My niece just had a baby! Since she did not do an ultra sound we did not know if she was having a girl or a boy..........I was prepared for either, but I just had a feeling she was going to have a girl. I was just finishing knitting this blanket when Hannah decided it was time. This is the before blocking picture.........and the after. This time I blocked using the wet method instead of steam, I'm thinking even though it takes longer, the results are much better then steaming with an iron.
I'm happy with the results, a first for me....knitting a blanket. I'll include a couple of pairs of booties I had made a while ago, something I like to make when I'm between projects. The white ones are crocheted and the green ones knitted. Now if I can just get them in the mail before little Miss Hannah outgrows them!

After I had finished the big infinity scarf for my niece, my husband decided he needed one to wear in the duck blind. Camouflage please.....
