I am knitting a scarf for a daughter
knitting tulle scrubbies
knitting cotton dishcloths for my sis
I just finished
knitting a sweater for the cat (not my idea! but cute!)
It is fun reading what others are making and as I scan I notice most of it is for others...there is a lot of love that goes into these projects isn't there?

I finished my Christmas project yesterday (I know it's January already, but time is a premium with a 2 yo) - it was a family blanket/wrap. I wanted something soft and big so we can all cuddle up on the couch under. Now I'm working of figuring what I should knit next. A vest for my son? A hat/scarf combo for him? I'd like to use up some of the yarn in my stash before I go buy more so I'll probably spend some time going over everything I've collected there to get inspired.
If anyone has a good and fun idea please let me know. It has to be something taking less than 4 months to finish though ;-)

Knit and am knitting dish cloths for all my gift baskets. I still have a family get-together the first weekend in the New Year.
I made wristers for my son's secret santa gift-he really wanted this little girl to have something special, so I stayed up late for two nights in a row to placate my son's first crush ;-).
A victory scarf for the "Thank a Veteran" drive.
Pieces of lace and cable to attach to fingertip towels. I keep a basket by each sink so my kids aren't using the same filthy hand towel over and over.
A crocheted shrug for my niece.
Hacky Sacks for my sons.
I never run out of projects--but I do have a few UFO's that are begging to be finished.

I'm almost finished with a crochet purse (first I've ever done).
I also am in the middle of making a stuffed toy crochet ball.
I finished a pair of baby booties, and I was making a matching hat, but ran out of the yarn, so I need to figure out whether I can substitute another I have, or if I should buy a whole new ball just to finish... :(
Next up I'll be improvising a narrow elephant design wall hanging for the nursery - there's a strip of window that is exposed because of the way the blinds fall, and light from the street comes in right on my baby's crib, so I wanted to make something to block the light.
I have such a big list of projects I want to make, so I don't think I'll ever run out of things to do!

I'm currrently working on a queen sized afghan of several colors for my in-laws as a house-warming/xmas gift...then it's off to sprint through 2 dog anigrarumis (probably spelled that wrong lol) and wrapping up the holidays with a king size afghan for my parents.
I'm gonna be amazed if my hands don't stay frozen in the crochet stance lol!

I just finished a mini Christmas stocking for my one-year old. It was very thrilling because it had cables in it and I had never done cables before! I love patterns that aren't TOO far above my skill-level but which still make me stretch myself and learn something new. Sooo much fun. Next I want to crochet a poncho (for my daughter as well!) which has a design involving several colours! I have never done that. Can't wait to buy the yarn and get started!

I finished my daughter's scarf & hat last week and am now working on my first ever pair of crocheted mittens for her.
I always have 8" crocheted squares on the go for the church blanket ministry [for lack of a better name] the 36 squares go into make a blanket for a needy or homeless person. I am also going to give it a shot to piece my first ever blanket together from pieces others have knit & crocheted.

I have a HUGE list of stuff to get done for Christmas. I have 3 blankets done so far, but I still have 3-5 left plus hats and scarves, a couple of dolls, and 2 sets of doll clothes. I am eating and sleeping crochet (in between school work and family).
