Success at Crafting or Fail at Blogging

Either I've been very productive at crafting, or slacking at blogging. I'll let you guess which. I'll just list them here, more details can be found on my Ravelry page, or you can leave me a note. Here goes:

I failed massively at designing baby booties.

Then I made up for it with some Ruffle Rib Baby Socks (Knitting Daily Pattern), which were gifted to someone at work. The color is very Jaguars.

Crocheted some Fun Fur Flip Flops for Donna, breaking the promise I made to myself never to do that, but she really wanted them.

I knit a few inches on a charity blanket for the Stitch It podcast.

And, only 10 months late, I delivered the last of last year's Christmas gifts. Gloves for my Dad. These are my own design, based off of instructions in a back issue of Interweave Knits.

I made an Umbilical Cord hat (from S n' B, which I got from my bro for my birthday) for the baby girl my cousin is expecting. Indy was then subjected to a long session of modeling it, due to a lack of anything else with a head small enough to model it. It started off okay

but after two whole minutes of trying to get him to look at the camera and sit still at the same time, Indy looked like

Some Monkey socks. How did I get to make something for me?

I've also finished my Lady February, and have another cute little kid hat that needs a little needle felting.

I love the gloves and the photos!

Wow! You've been doing a lot of knitting!

I'm looking forward to seeing your FLS!

Thanks Jodi, I never got to show you ladies the gloves finished because I kept forgetting to bring them, but I brought them mostly completed last January. And hopefully they're getting used this winter back home.

Jackie, It really looks like a lot, but the socks were started in May, and the gloves were mostly knit last winter. FLS pics will probably be posted when I get home from work early enough to take pics in the daylight, or if I have time on a weekend, so who knows when that will be...

You must feel like you could take on the world! I know some of these were started a while ago, but getting all that finishing done in such a short time is fantastic. I need to follow your lead...especially in the glove department!
