peekaboo, i see you

I just love this picture. :)  He was playing with my friend's sunglasses yesterday and I was lucky enough to catch this pic.

For the month of July I will be rocking the WIPs.  I am not taking any classes--which always distracts me from my WIPs.  I am not casting on for anything new aside from the Itty Bitty Hat KAL that I have already committed to.  I am going to focus on my WIPs and get some things off of my needles.  I am participating in the WIPS Wrestlemania on Ravelry.  The idea is to tackle some projects and train for the Winter Ravelympics which are fast approaching! :)

Do you see that WIPs list on the sidebar?  I'm at 20.  Yup.  That's a lot.  My current focus is the February Lady Sweater.  I am trying to do one lace repeat a night which takes me about an hour.  I am also going to throw in some almost done projects to mix it up a bit so I don't get bored.  My lack of attention span is part of my problem, so I am hoping the diversity of projects while also focusing mostly on one project will be the best of both worlds.  

I am also aiming for really regular blog posting to keep me motivated!! :)

I can't believe how long it is has been since I last posted!  

Life got ridiculously busy for awhile there.  I have been making all sorts of great stuff though!

I have been working on my February Lady Sweater that I have wanted to make for forever.  

I am further along then the picture shows--about 5 repeats into the lace section.  And there is no shame in having markers every 7 stitches!!! :)

Here is my Baby Surprise Jacket with buttons, finally.  They are cute little sheep that I picked up from Rhinebeck.  I put basic plastic buttons on the back because the sheep are quite heavy.  I also single crocheted around the edge of the button holes because the sheep were getting caught.

I updated my WIPs and FOs on the side bar with Ravelry links in case you are so inclined.  I'll be back sooner then 2 months this time!! :)
