I really don't have much to report right now. I'm working on knitting a mermaid costume for the girls from Vickie Howell's book New Knits on the Block. The top is done and I'm making good progress on the skirt. I really want to finish this before getting into much of anything else. That plus I'll have two more to make. :::sigh:::
I said "much of anything else" because I do have to sneak in a quick project later this week. Izzy has been invited to a birthday party for a little boy in her class this Saturday. I think I'm going to get some felt and some Hot Wheels and make a little travel play mat/carrying case for the cars. I saw something similar online once and it's not exactly what I want, so I'm going to revise it heavily.
I need to start planning out Christmas presents soon, also. It might be 4 months away, but if I plan on making stuff, I'll need every bit of that to complete them. I just hope I don't make someone something and then realize last minute there's something even better I have to make instead. I do that. It's why I can't shop early... I always change my mind last minute and get them something else.
