I got out the biggest crochet hook I own and hooked up this baby blanket in two evenings. It's essentially a BIG granny square. Three strands of Lion Brand Microspun made it a quick hook. One more baby gift completed.
I'm also cross-stitching some small gifts for a shower this weekend. It's not going as quickly as I'd like - I find that while I can force myself to knit or even crochet faster, I can only cross-stitch at one speed and it's not very fast.
Slow and steady right.
Thanks to everyone for the copious comments. You all are great - I certainly didn't make the de-lurking any easier by not posting all weekend. :)
In other news, my previously bright red bathroom is now plain-boring-white. Four coats of paint and primer later! It took all weekend and for such a small room, it was a pain to paint. It makes me sad and I miss the red, but the realtor said it'll make the house more sell-able.
